Nothing of worth appears to have changed. Note that the letter offers
the opinion that "there was and could be nothing in it.* A sound
prediction. Members continue to lapse faster than new ones can be
found. I shall be one of them this very year - there is no longer any
point in wasting my money or my time on the TS in England, members of
whom, in the past year, have sought to defame my character, have acted
illegally in respect of the Society's rules towards me, have ignored
genuine news items sent to their journal (like the efforts of the TSA to
reach out via the Internet) and at the same time have had the nerve to
ask to to travel 320 miles to give a talk at London HQ for expenses
Last time I did this from Bristol (only 120 miles) I was not even
offered anything to eat. Some brotherhood.
