 Yes, the decision to make Judge and Besant co-heads was made
by the IG right after HPB died. Judge had nothing to do with it.
As for that famous Mahatma Letter, even in her charges against
Judge, Besant does not question the authenticity of the Mahatma
letter, but how it was used. C'est tres bizarre--n'est-ce pas?

 I've been meaning to ask Rich that question myself.
