- Aug 11, 2001SUBJECT: Dallas' excellent recommendation: "Get a
copy of the documents referred to."
Dallas, in your recent public email to Dennis Kier
about the book THE THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT, you write:
". . . Unless we pursue those to their SOURCES, we
will still have only unfounded opinions, and be no
further ahead. So my recommendation is to do what all
sincere students of History do: Get a copy of the
documents referred to. Read and compare. Nothing can
be decided by adding one more opinion to the heap.
"If this is done, then each reader can form his own
estimate of their respective worth. What could be
"As I see it, our job is to present to the reader and
researcher the sources used to frame an opinion. Let
the reader independently arrive at their own
conclusions. . . ."
Dallas, are you willing to help Dennis and other
interested individuals obtain copies of some of these
various documents? I think this is a very good
suggestion and should be implemented. Actually the
documents could be posted for all interested persons
on the various theosophical discussion forums as well
as,possibly, on some website.
But there are other documents NOT mentioned or cited
in the two editions of THE THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT which
throw further light on the subjects discussed. These
also should be made available to all readers, students
and researchers so that they can "independently arrive
at their own conclusions."
For example, I am told that one well-known ULT
associate has unpublished letters and documents that
would throw more light on why Robert Crosbie left the
Point Loma TS in 1904. Will you work at trying to
obtain copies of these documents and make them public
so that the issues that you and Frank R. have been
debating could possibly be resolved or at least better
understood? I can give you this associate's name so
you can write to him.
I hope all of us including you will follow up on this
excellent suggestion that you have given Dennis.
