I've just had a brainstorm which impels me to do some research
and writing fast, and am hoping someone can help. My new book
Initiates of the Theosophical Masters is being copyedited at
the moment by SUNY Press. But when copyedited ms. comes back I
am free to add new text for free. After it gets typeset, the
window of opportunity closes.
The brainstorm is that I need to include a section on Annie
Besant's first (1893-94) journey through India with Olcott in
the last section on "The Great White Sisterhood." Just read
relevant portions of ODL, finding plenty of evidence that HSO
was deliberately taking AB to all the places and meeting all
the people still living who/which had played major parts in his
relations with the Masters. While I leave out AB's later
career, this phase of her life is unquestionably initiatory in
the sense of fitting it with the rest of the book.
So I have 3-4 weeks to write another 10-15 pages on this to
incorporate into the ms. All I have is ODL and Nethercot.
Will call E. Trumpler to ask for advice. So here's where I
need help: CAN ANYONE PROVIDE REFERENCES TO SOURCES IN WHICH
ANNIE DESCRIBES THIS JOURNEY IN HER OWN WORDS?
