The anonymous authors of THE THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT 1875-1950 write:

...Most important of these was the matter of the "Prayag Letter," 
published by Mr. Judge in the Path for March. This letter was 
presented by Mr. Judge as a communication sent in 1881 by a Mahatma, 
through Madame Blavatsky, to A. P. Sinnett, who was to convey it to 
the Indian members of the Prayag Branch of the Theosophical Society. 
Olcott, Sinnett, and Mrs. Besant, however, were of the opinion that 
the Prayag Letter was a fraud, thereby imputing the good faith of 
H.P.B., the teacher of all three. By publishing the letter in the 
Path, Mr. Judge forced this issue out into the open....

....With publication of these views, it was evident that of the four 
theosophists prominent before the world after H.P.B.'s death  H. S. 
Olcott, A. P. Sinnett, William Q. Judge, and  Annie Besant  only 
one, Judge, was faithful to her and to her ideals. Both Olcott and 
Mrs. Besant repudiated a letter which H.P.B. had herself transmitted 
to Sinnett as from her Master. Sinnett charged her with forgery and 
fraud before she died. Only Judge continued H.P.B.'s work in the 
spirit with which it had been begun and maintained by her.....
