I agree with your main points.

By the end of this important posting of yours (below), you seem to ask for evidences that "the alleged forged letters" ascribed to HPB are indeed forged.

Simple and easy.   I have written several articles on that. And more.  There is no one who says these letters are authentic. Not even Caldwell and Algeo.   They make propaganda of what they KNOW is false.  They plant DOUBTS. 

If you look at the Letters, you will see they are false. 

In the last few months, I have been bringing here hundreds of evidences of their falsehood,  and if you stick around you will see more of it. 

Twenty per cent of the HPB LETTERS published by Algeo are false. He calls them "of poor legitimacy" in some cases;  in other cases he says "their  originals never appeared".  Got it?  Inuendos.  You know that trick, as Adyar TS uses this political tactics with nearly all "heretics" and it may have used it against you, as it used it against William Judge in 1894-95.  

I hope  you can understand that the policy of inuendos, of "maybes", of planting  doubts, is also related to the policy of "silent editting", and  to the policy of never honestly accepting  Adyar TS' past (or present) mistakes.  

Best regards,   Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
