Are you trying to provide us with the first review of the new volume?
Nobody, so far as I know, has even read a draft copy as of yet.
Still, the early bird catches the worm, and as truth does not seem to
be a criteria for some people, why wait?
Bruce, I provide below a "review" [?] of probably what this
new volume will include and NOT include. I quote from
"The HPB Defense Fund is specifically dedicated to the publication
of an authentic Volume I of Madame Blavatsky's letters. The proposed
volume will have the fraudulent letters in the current Adyar edition
REMOVED . . ." caps added
What letters might be removed??????????????????????
The second source:
"More than one century later, the book entitled The Letters of H. P.
Blavatsky - Volume I , edited by Mr. John Algeo and published by the
USA T.P.H. in 2003, might be in the same broad category of books
with an unhealthy aura. Mr. Algeo included in it forged texts full
of disgusting lies and libels, cleverly mixed among authentic
"H.P. Blavatsky – the woman who worked day and night for the good of
mankind and who gave the world such wonderful books as The Voice of
the Silence and The Secret Doctrine – is made to describe herself as
a mean person; a Russian spy ('letter' 07); someone who helped
torture a cat to death during 'occult' experiences ( 'letter' 76);
someone who would like to sell her soul ('letter' 53); and someone
whom the devil got into trouble in her youth ('letter' 69) – to name
but a few examples of Mr. John Algeo's 'work'."
"Out of the 136 'letters' published by Mr. John Algeo, at least 27
documents are certainly false. . . .
"This is an initial assessment. Further research may reveal the
number is actually greater and – besides the 27 false letters – one
of the three versions presented by Algeo of his 'Letter 117' is
certainly false, too. . . .
"That makes 20 percent of the total. One out of five letters of the
volume is false. Nearly all the 27 forged documents are deeply
offensive to H .P. Blavatsky, and more treacherously so since they
are presented as if signed by HPB herself. . . ."
I don't have to be clairvoyant to guess what letters will probably
not be in the new "edition."
