No Word from the "Editor"

I don't see contradiction in my two paragraphs quoted by Daniel.=20

Indeed, in his disgusting and sad book, there is "no word from the 'editor'=
 Daniel Cadlwell admitting he is publishing documents which have no trace o=
f truth in them whatsoever".

He only says that those texts are not likely to be true, or something simil=
ar, and thus he follows the well-known "maybe policy".=20

And even this he writes in a way which the average reader will most likely =

John Algeo did the same thing with the HPB Letters. Some 20 per cent of the=
 texts published by Algeo in his "HPB Letters" volume I --- are fake.=20

Caldwell was more modest -- but then, he was the pioneer in publishing semi=
-unidentified lies and libels as if they were part of the theosophical lite=

In the introduction of his unfortunate boook, Caldwell calls "testimonies" =
those open and shameful lies.

No honest editor or Historian can do such a thing. I still hope in the futu=
re Caldwell will realize that this is not the proper thing to do.=20

Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline=20
