Some of my own thinking on the matter can be found at:

especially in Footnote 1 at:

For example, interested readers should compare and contrast
Henry Olcott's testimony about his encounters with the Masters

with the testimony of Coulomb and Hodgson at:

I would think that the perceptive reader of this material might
see some glaring differences.....
