Eldon, you write

>forthright, creative nature.

Eldon, I think tat's a perfectly good meaning of the word brotherhood. But
don';t you see the problem is that not everyone would agree with you that
this is so; and I don't realy think we need to antagonize any prospective
new theosophical member because of a silly word, to which some people now
attach a different meaning than the one you present above. It's cutting off
our noses to spite our faces.
