Judge: "It is an issue that may not be evaded...."

Judge wrote in 1894:
Let it be proved that H.P.B. . . . is a liar and a fraud, and I will
abandon the T. S. and all its belongings; but until so proved I will
remain where I was put. Lastly, as final proof of the delusions
worked through this man and his friends I will mention this: Many
years ago (in 1881) the Masters sent to the Allahabad Brahmans (the
Prayag T. S.) a letter which was delivered by H.P.B. . . . to Mr. A.
P. Sinnett, who handed a copy over to them, keeping the original. It
dealt very plainly with the Brahmans. This letter the Brahmans do
not like, and Mr. Chakravarti tried to make me think it was a pious
fraud by H.P.B.. . . He succeeded with Mrs. Besant in this, so that
since she met him she has on various occasions said she thought it
was a fraud by H.P.B. . . . , made up entirely, and not from the
Master. . . . Only delusion would make Mrs. Besant take this
position; deliberate intention makes the others do it. It is an
issue that may not be evaded, for if that letter be a fraud then all
the rest sent through our old teacher, are the same. I shall rest on
that issue; we all rest on it. . . ."
