To follow up the discussion of a source for the story that Judge
warned Besant not to go to India, because Olcott was allegedly
planning to murder her by poison.

I ran into Herb Lubitz at the Mid-Atlantic Gathering, and he said
he was currently reading Vol.  4 of Old Diary Leaves.  Without my
even bringing up the story, he mentioned it and said he had read
it in that volume.  Since Annie was of course alive when the
story was published, first in the Theosophist and then in ODL,
she would have been able to correct it if she had wanted to.
Thus-- it seems credible.

Will look for the specific passage.
