You said :
The issue you have is that you don't understand the diary records. The diary records DESCRIBE or SUMMARISE the message received. So you know whats on it, even if its not available. Why I said 99% is because a very small number did not get recorded in the diary. So we know what came through on 2500 messages. And we can assess if anything important was lost
In fact, it is half true. I understood that this diary was an index of all James Padgett's messages but I didn't understand that in this diairy we have a short summary of all messages received. But stil, we know that there are 2500 messages received, but we have just the full content for 1200 of them. So we have a full content of just half of the messages. Through consulting the diairy, we get to know that the most important messages were not lost.
I recommend reading them, as they tell a lot about James Padgett you don't learn anywhere else.
There so many things I should do !!! We will see how what the future will bring to us.
Going, once again, through the index, I can see the last message received, annd published, by James Padgett was on April 17th 1922. James Padgett passed into the spirit on April 17th 1923. Strange coïncidence !!! The last words by Luke to James Padgett were :
I am glad that I can write to you again, and that your condition is so much better than it has been, and permits the rapport to be made. Pray more to the Father and believe, and you will get in a condition that we so much desire. I will not write more. good night.
So this question came to my mind. Was James Padgett physically ill in the years 1920-1923 or was it he just had difficulties to get on with his mission as a medium ? I can understand that this mission, as a medium, must have been quite exausting in time of energy. In the years 1916 - 1918 James Padget received several messages a day and during quite a few days for every week. James Padgett really did an incredibe job !!! It is just a pity that all messages could not be preserved but in the same time we have to be grateful to Dr Samuel and Dr Stone who had the difficult mission to pass on all those messages. To type all of all of them when they were not professionnal typists was really extraordinary. All mankind can be extremely grateful to the three of them for their achivements !!!
To speak again about coincidences, what really impressed me the most, at firts, when I got to know about James Padgett's mesages,is the fact that quite all those messages were received at the time of World War I who was, for Europe, and specially for France and Germany a time of great misery !!
Thanks a lot for everything.
All the best.
