The following, published in The Search Light, Vol. I, page 30, April, 1898, calls for no comment. It speaks for itself. [H.N. Stokes]
We, the undersigned, who were present at the first Council Meeting, held after Mr. Judge's death, on March 27th, 7.45 p.m., at Mrs. Tingley's house, 373 West End Avenue, hereby declare that we did not depend upon Mr. Hargrove's statements or actions in our acceptance of Mrs. Tingley as Outer Head of the E.S.T., but that the position taken by each of us, was due to the direct personal knowledge of each irrespective of all he - Mr. Hargrove - said or did.
Sworn to before me this 20th day
of January, 1898
