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

announcing (maybe without realising it) that the battle for a true
theosophy has already been lost.
