Subject: Can We Fill in the Elipses?Aug. 25
th
, 1995
Question
?
I am looking for some missing words. In TM 342, we read:"There should be a division of the field, or some other plan should be devised, to change the present order of things. . . ."The president of the General Conference should have the privilege of deciding who shall stand by his side as counselors."In every occasion on the CD-Rom, the elipses are either there, or they are omitted, but no indication is made what wasdeleted. (I searched with the query: "change-present-order division".) Is there an unpublished document that shows whatwas omitted? If so, I would like to request a copy.Thanks for your helpfulness,_______
Answer

Yes, there is an unpublished document. It is Letter 24a, 1896. Several years ago the White Estate instituted a "permanentloan" policy so that people who wished to see documents or portions of them that were not in print could request thedocument from the White Estate. We send them out on permanent loan; the user does not have to return the item.There are some limits to this policy, as you might well expect. One is that we cannot process large requests; the purpose of the policy is not to copy everything anyone asks for, or we would soon be doing nothing else. So we limit it to no morethan two or three items. Those needing more should go to one of the White Estate centers where they can better do theirresearch. By the way, we expect in a couple of years to have the whole letter and manuscript file available on a CD-ROM,so those intending to do extensive work in the letters and manuscripts will be able to do it right on their own computers.The other limit to the policy is that the White Estate reserves publication rights to material not previously published. Inother words, documents sent on permanent loan are for personal study, not for publication or distribution to others.Would you like me to send you the document in question under these conditions? I can do so, but I will wait to hear fromyou since I don't know whether you were asking for it for publication purposes. Let me know. God bless.--------William Fagal, DirectorEllen G.

Question

Dear Pastor Fagal,I recently saw where the published writings of Mrs. White were available on CD. The word "published" caught myattention. What of her writings have not been published?_______
Answer
!
There are about 60,000 pages of Mrs. White's letters and manuscripts known to exist. (We have them in our collection atthe various White Estate offices.) A rough guess would be that about half of the material has been published somewhere.Of the part that has not been published, a major portion of it adds nothing new to what is already in print. Mrs. White oftengave similar counsel to more than one person. But almost every new topical compilation that is published these days has atleast some new material in it that has not previously been published.Sometime this coming year the White Estate will publish a CD-ROM that has the entire letter and manuscript collection onit. That way anyone can read and search everything that we have without having to come to a White Estate facility. Wemay not even then call those the "published" writings, since they are not in print on paper. But they will be easilyavailable.I hope this answers the question! God bless.--------William Fagal, DirectorEllen G.

Is there any way to access Mrs. White's UNpublished works??? Letters? Various subjects, etc.Thanks.Kymsue Jones

Thank you for contacting the Ellen G. White Estate. I saw your message when I checked the logs this morning. Perhapsyou received an automated reply stating that the computer didn't recognize the commands, etc. That is because yourmessage went to the automated server rather than to an e-mail account. But I'm happy to try to answer your question. If you have further questions, feel free to contact me at this e-mail address.Is there a way to access the unpublished writings of Mrs. White? Yes, but not electronically (yet--see below). The WhiteEstate has more than a dozen offices around the world, almost all of them at major educational institutions belonging tothe church. Each of these offices has a complete set of the letters and manuscripts of Mrs. White, duplicating the set at themain office at the General Conference in Silver Spring. Here at Andrews we have the first of these facilities to beestablished. I guess that makes us kind of the "granddad" among the others, chronologically at least. During the currentterm there is a class of about 100 seminarians studying the Ellen G. White writings, and one of their assignments is tospend a number of hours reading in the letters and manuscripts. So we are keeping busy, more than usual, helping them.However, travel to one of these offices may not be practical for many people. The White Estate is now engaged indeveloping a CD-ROM that will have all of the letters and manuscripts of Mrs. White on it. We had thought it might beavailable by the end of 1997, but that proved too ambitious. Now we hope it will be out before the end of 1998. Even thatgoal may be beyond our reach--time will tell. But we are moving toward completing the project as quickly as possible.Even without this material being easily available yet, we are not impoverished in access to the instruction that has comethrough Ellen G. White. During her lifetime Mrs. White put into print the main lines of her counsel to the church. Sinceher death the White Estate, following the instructions she gave in her will, has published quite a bit more from her letterand manuscript file to meet the needs of the growing church. I do not anticipate new and startling revelations to come fromthe electronic publication of the letters and manuscripts. I think, rather, that it will give us a clearer glimpse into Mrs.White's life, concerns, and methods of labor. We will also get easier access to some details about the Adventist work inthose days.I hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for getting in touch. May God bless and guide you.--------William Fagal, DirectorEllen G.
