Lewis: Thought you made a good point here. It continues to amaze how
unChrist like some can act while professing to be his follower!

Lewis: Have you ever run across a story about HPB concerning her
giving members of the royal court in England applications for
membership? As I recall it some questioned the value, saying it was
like casting pearls before the swine. Didn't she realize that they
were only interested because they had heard the queen was? She said
that the seed had been sown, the link created even though it might be
lifetimes before they benefited from it.
