Doss -

Your reference to the book by Baborka would not be regarded as
conclusive evidence by serious scholars or TS history buffs if, as I
suspect, it was or still is published by the TS itself, which "edits"
the work of TS greats to expunge inconvenient writings of theirs.

I guess I am asking *you* for your view of the facts, and *your*
assessment of the evidence, not Barborka's.
