    Work Done in Mrs. White’s Office

    These illustrations make clear the type of work that was done in making the revisions for the 1911 edition of The Great Controversy. The work was done in Mrs. White’s office at Elmshaven, near St. Helena in northern California, by her office staff and under her direction. The reader may ask, “What evidence do we have that Mrs. White did as she said she did in her statement quoted earlier: ‘These changes I have carefully examined and approved’?”EGWW 131.9

    The records of the White Estate are very full. In these is a large manila envelope containing proofs showing the changes made in the 1911 edition. This envelope is marked: “Controversy Proofs Prepared for Mrs. E. G. White’s Inspection and Approval.” At the bottom appear the words “All Approved.”EGWW 132.1

    Everyone, therefore, may rest assured that the 1911 edition, published four years before Mrs. White’s death, was her presentation of the subject, in which, as she said, truths “were stated in the very best manner,” prepared to reach the public in a form bearing her full and unqualified endorsement.EGWW 132.2

    Four sets of printing plates were made, and the book was issued simultaneously from the three publishing houses in North America and the publishing house serving the church in Great Britain.EGWW 132.3
