H. S. Olcott: Investigating agent to the assassination of the Racial Avatar President Abraham Lincoln. JPC.
Racial Avatars. These Appearances are evoked by the genius
and destiny of a race, The typical man (in quality and consciousness, not necessarily physically) foreshadows the nature of
some race. Such a man was Abraham Lincoln, coming forth from the very soul of a people, and introducing and transmitting racial
quality - a quality to be worked out later as the race unfolds. Coming forth correspondingly from the realm of cosmic evil,
and responsible for the focus of materialism upon the planet today was Bismarck. Both men came forth within the same one hundred
years, thus demonstrating the balance in nature and the constant interplay of the pairs of opposites. They are both types
of the most powerful Avatars which humanity itself has as yet produced.
They emerge along the lines of government, of the first
ray and in the department of the Manu, and are very sensitive to Shamballa force. Such Avatars frequently emerge at the founding
of a nation. This is true of both Bismarck and Lincoln. EXT 298.
'When Lincoln was assassinated, Olcott was appointed
to the three-man special commission to investigate the murder.'
The Mark Lane Express and New York Tribune both retained
him as agricultural correspondent. In 1860, when Virginia authorities forbade any Northerner from witnessing the hanging of
John Brown, Olcott volunteered to witness the event incognito for his New York paper, and succeeded.
When the Civil War broke out, Olcott enlisted in the
signal corps and went through the North Carolina campaign under General Burnside. After recovering from dysentery, he served
for four years as Special Commissioner of the War Department, investigating fraud, corruption, and graft at the New York Mustering
and Disbursement Office. Because of his integrity, courage, and effectiveness, he was made a Colonel and then assigned to
the Navy Department in Washington, DC, to investigate fraud in the Navy Yards, where he reformed the system of accounts and
effectively reduced corruption. He received high commendation for his work from the Secretary of the Navy. When Lincoln was
assassinated, Olcott was appointed to the three-man special commission to investigate the murder.
After resigning his commission in 1865, he returned to
New York City to study law. In 1868 he was admitted to the New York Bar and became successful as a specialist in insurance,
customs, and revenue cases. Remembering H. S. Olcott By Sarah Belle Dougherty. www.theosophy-nw.org/theosnw/theos/th-sbdo.htm
That evening, I should think about 12 o'clock, a messenger
appeared at my room at Willard's Hotel, a Mr. Olcott, a Special Agent then at work on this investigation, and said to me,
"The Secretary wants you, and the devil is to pay." I said, "What is it?" He answered, "I don't know, but he is in a terrible
temper." Brigadier-General Henry Lawrence Burnett. www.iment.com/maida/familytree/burnett/lincoln2.htm

and H. L. Burnett served on the Commission as Special Judge Advocates. THE LINCOLN ASSASSINATION CONSPIRATORS TRIAL. http://jurist.law.pitt.edu/famoustrials/lincoln.php
Booth passed to the right up near to the president's
box, where he stopped a moment and leaned against the wall. He then stepped down one step, placed his hand on the door of
the passage leading to the President's box and his knee against it, and pushed the door open. He then placed a brace against
the door on the inside, which had previously been prepared by him or some one of his confederates for the purpose of preventing
an entrance of intrusion from the outside; passed along the passageway to the door on the left opening into the President's
box, stopped and looked through a hole which had been cut in the door to see the President's position and if his attention
was concentrated upon the stage; softly pushed the door open and entered, no one observing him; then, standing within two
or three feet of the President, fired.
The ball entered the back part of the left side of the
President. The pistol used was a large sized derringer, about six inches in length, carrying a large handmade ball. Upon hearing
the discharge of the pistol, Major Rathbone looked around and saw through the smoke a man between the door and the President.
At the same time he heard the man should some word which he thought was "freedom!" Another witness thought he shouted "Revenge
for the South!"
"Here were five human beings in a narrow space -- the
greatest man of his time in the glory for the most stupendous success in our history, the idolized chief of a nation already
mighty, with illimitable vistas of grandeur to come. Brigadier-General Henry Lawrence Burnett. http://www.iment.com/maida/familytree/burnett/lincoln.htm#assassin
Lincoln opposed the expansion of slavery and oversaw the Union war effort during the American Civil
War. He selected the generals and approved their strategy; selected senior civilian officials; supervised diplomacy, patronage
and party affairs; rallied public opinion through messages and speeches such as the Gettysburg Address; and took personal
charge of plans for the abolition of slavery and the Reconstruction of the Union. He was assassinated as the war ended by
John Wilkes Booth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln
