Mr. Crosbie & Mrs. Tingley IN TOUCH with the deceased W.Q. Judge?
- Robert Crosbie wrote in 1907:
". . . Judge came to Boston. . . . Something however
happened then; a veil was lifted. A TIE WAS FORMED
which has never since been broken. . . ."
". . . my connection with Judge was INTIMATE ON INNER
LINES; these cannot be explained, but to me they are
THE ONLY REAL ONES. . . ."
"At the time of the passing of W.Q.J. . . . I was in
Boston, and saw no reason to doubt the statements made
[about Katherine Tingley by]. . . those in N.Y. whom I
believed to be sincere and of good training and
judgment. I should have known BY OTHER MEANS the
TRUE state of affairs,--but this had happened--when
Judge passed out of life, I LOST TOUCH WITH HIM;
doubtless I relied on him too much, and had not
exercised my own intuition; from later events my
comprehension is, that THIS LOSS OF TOUCH [with Judge]
was PURPOSELY DONE in order that I might strengthen my
weakness in that direction. I went to Point Loma at
Mrs. Tingley's urgent request to assist in the
proposed work, and was there for two years, helping to
prepare the way for the expected developments, BEFORE
I BEGAN TO GET BACK THE TOUCH I HAD LOST [with Judge].
. . ." CAPS ADDED.
So did Robert Crosbie believe he was in
"communication" with the dead William Quan Judge?
If so, is Crosbie's claim any different than the claim
that Katherine Tingley was in contact with the dead
Some food for thought.
