A Simple and Sincere
Request of Justice to William Judge
William Judge (1851 - 1896) and Radha Burnier
Since April 2006, theosophists from several
countries send yearly open letters to the President
of the Adyar Society suggesting that the 1894-1895
“Case” against William Judge should be reopened and
his innocence acknowledged. Judge was then accused
by Annie Besant of forging messages from Mahatmas.
Although unfair, the accusation was politically efficient
and it provoked the first formal division in the modern
theosophical movement. In the following letter, the
ex-editor of “The Aquarian Theosophist” innovates by
sending his request to
form of a poem. India

Dear Mrs. Burnier
In sending you this short request, we wish it resounds in your heart and strengthens your fairness.
“We, who are students of the theosophical life,
studying together in unity yet diverse, but n’ere in strife,
we respectfully stand together to send you this token,
to which we sign our name to repair another’s broken.
From the deep well of our respect that calls us to his behest,
we act for him through this simple request
in asking for your kindness, charity and justice for Will’m Judge.”
In sincerity and fraternity,
The Garden Flat
