I for one would like _some_ historical background in the
discussion of the Mahatma Letters, especially where it
illuminates the content or helps explain the difficulties in
transmission and reception etc.

All this stuff is of real interest to me, as I shall draw from it

There's obviously some fiery event (several?) in the history of
the list that involved you before I came along, Paul, but please
give this a go.
