I'm glad to hear that John is in good health and the kids are
still involved.  Actually it was Emily who I had in mind as being
deceased--or did I only imagine reading that obituary?

I would very much like to hear a bit more about this one, if
you've got the time ....

So would I.

I've been through this scenario several times before.  I would
post historical information on a subject; usually several people
become offended because the information challenges one or another
theosophical myth.  Sometimes it becomes a dialogue with one
other person and dead silence from the other 100 + subscribers.
Except of course the occasional personal message I would receive,
like: "love your historical material--keep on writing."

Actually, I don't have the time to compose those six page posts
and dig up supporting documents anymore, but even if I did, I
think there is a better way.  I would like to see a full
discussion with at least ten participants.  This way we will have
ten view points--not one.  I will be very happy to participate
and be an information resource when needed and when I can, but I
don't feel that much is accomplished by my being a solo voice.
Bart Lidofsky has already started the ball rolling:

Which letter are you quoting Bart?  Do you believe that the ES is
"exactly what it is supposed to be in the first place"?  If not,
how is it different?
