Dear Richard,

You *could* subscribe to the TI statement of intent without thereby
abandoning your integrity to the spirit of the three objects as
currently formulated.  The Societies are not likely to change them
anyway- even though they do *not* constitute an inviolable document.  So
far as TS (Adyar) is concerned the objects as written need to remain as
stated if for no other reason than that they are part of the Articles of
Incorporation ("TS Rules Adyar" on web page - in HISTORY directory I
think) and form part of the legal structure of that body.
