MKR:	No only that. When at that time when inquired as how famous
Krishnaji is going to be when compared to Annie Beasan, CWL had responded
that Krishnaji will be more famous that her. This is a fact. Not only
that, many members of Theosophical Society all over, even to this day,
have greatly benefitted by Krishnaji and his teachings have made it
easier to understand some of the fundamentals of Theosophy as applied to
our day to day life.

MKR:	Most on the list are fully aware of it. Since Washington wrote
the book to make money and many have limited budget of time and
money, may not have read them, nor are they likely to.
