I have lately been reading the early copies of the Theosophical
Path-1911/1926 and Henry Edge features in them all but so do quite a lot of
travelogues. There are articles and photos of many places in the world
unconnected with Theosophy and some articles on the philosophers and
gardening with the devas.
The old Lucifers are very broad in their essays. There are letters quite
critical of the Editor (HPB) and she responds sometimes nicely and sometimes
tells them a thing or two.
I don't think a partyline had started at that time but that seems to be the
way of most things.
