Formal statement provided to ExBaba by Dr. Timothy Conway Ph. D. concerning the Hislop letters.

"The authenticity of the four letters written by Dr. John Hislop has been wrongly contested by a person who has no knowledge of the true state of affairs. There were three memos from Hislop to the Directors, one of which was 2 pages long (front and back of a piece of paper). Then there was a letter to the Paynes, dated the same day as Hislop's second memo to Directors (namely, 2-21-81). It was Dr. John Hislop's custom during the early and mid-1980s (if not earlier as well) to type out monthly or nearly monthly memos on his typewriter and send Xerox copies to some 15-20 persons on his mailing list (Directors and Officers for the Sri Sathya Sai Baba Council of America).
The scans and transcripts of all the four Hislop letters posted on ExBaba are genuine copies of the contents of the original letters, which were handed over to me by the former President of the San Francisco Sathya Sai Centre after I had taken over from him. This applies to the 'cleaned-up' versions of the scans on the URLs listed below, apart from omissions of two minor words in one of the scans, which do not alter the veracity of the text in any way. I cannot find any other differences in text upon a fairly exhaustive comparing of my pages of the Hislop memos with those online. I have already provided a statement affirming all this on August 19, 2005, attested by a Public Notary in Santa Barbara County, to those exposť activists who are considering legal actions, to whom scans of these letters have again been provided."

One scan was never cleaned-up or brightness/contrast adjusted. Those who wish to see Timothy Conway's previous comments on the Hislop cover-up can click here) See also comments on the Sathya Sai Organisation cover-up and the Hislop letters and the following URL

Note: The former president of the San Franscisco Sathya Sai Centre was Mr. John Prendergast. The whole business of these letters' authenticity was complicated by the simple fact that the scans with Timothy Conway's annotations on them were later 'cleaned up', brightened and given more contrast than the scanner produced - all just for the sake of the reader. This gave Joe Moreno a chance to go to town with his usual disinformation nit-picking all tiny details to try to cast doubt on them and eventually to claim there are all counterfeited by someone among us! He will not listen to any reason, but goes on because he is in his pathologically antipathetic denial. This represents a definitive conclusion to the matter of the authenticity of the Hislop letters for all reasonable persons (if not even now for the top denial merchant and counterfeiter of bogus letter texts - known liar and defamer Gerald 'Joe' Moreno - who acts with durty tricks as a defender of Sathya Sai Baba and his organisation on all occasions).

Honest and fair-minded researchers can be put in touch with Dr. Timothy Conway by mailing a request for his e-mail address or message to him to this website. Those with known devious intentions or bogus IPs will not be answered.
