HPB did not claim, she did not assert. She made phenomena and dozens of persons who saw them gave their public testimonies. Apart from phenomena, dozens of theosophists had their own independent evidences that they were chelas and lay chelas of various Mahatmas.
So to say of that period (1875-1891) that "HPB claimed SHE was in contact with the Masters" is a shameful LIE if the statement comes from anyone who studied the History of the Movement.
It is not a question of "believing".
It is a question of recognizing the fact the there are hundreds of evidences about Masters in those years.
