Now that, I wouldn;t be surprised, might be a route to follow!

I don't blame them at all. If this wondrous thing called Theosophy had
lived up to its expectations, they might have had something worth
getting together for. I just uploaded "Message2.txt" of 1889 by HPB to
my homepage - it is very sad reading, for it seems to me that she is
announcing (maybe without realising it) that the battle for a true
theosophy has already been lost.
