Excerpt from A Modern Priestess of Isis
Much, however, I was able to cut out at once. All that dealt with passages omitted from the original narrative could, of course, be dropped without hesitation. This at once accounted for a large portion of a pamphlet where the strength of the attack was coneen trated upon matters which did not directly touch the real question at issue. But the object of the rest was to produce disbelief in Mr. Solovyoffs veracity, partly by the evidence of letters written by himself, partly by comments and assertions of the authoress. As regards this I can only say that I have honestly and conscientiously endeavoured to give everything which is in any way to be regarded as of the nature of relevant fact. Two or three letters of Mr. Solovyoff's, and parts of some others, have been omitted. This has been done after careful consideration on the ground that they in no way whatever bear on the question at issue. They contain personal matters only, or refer to questions which it was thought right to omit from the principal narrative. The leading members of the Society for Psychical Research whom I have consulted with respect to these omissions, and who share the responsibility for them, are unanimous in holding that the letters are in no sense evidential.
