      Displaying Mahatma Letters at Adyar

      The Mahatma Letters to A P Sinnett are housed at the British Museum in
      London. They are very well preserved using the best preservation
      techniques. Anyone who visits the British Museum can handle some of them
      and see for themselves. Obviously the preservation technique used by the
      British Museum permits handling of the letters without any damage or
      detriment to the irreplaceable letters.

      Everyone knows that many letters from the Mahatmas are at Adyar Archives.
      Some of these letters which have already been published can be preserved
      using the techniques adopted by the British Museum and be made available
      for visitors to Adyar to see and handle them. This project is a laudable
      one because most members from India cannot afford to travel to London and
      see the Mahatma letters. Can we not help them see some of them at Adyar?

      One wonders why none of the Presidents from CJ onwards did not think of
      this possibility? There is no downside to it except for initial expense of
      putting some of the letters through the preservation process used in the
      British Museum.

      Would it not be a good idea for the members of General Council who are
      supposed to work towards the interests of TS members push for this project
      and even consider financing it?

      Just a thought from an ordinary member.
