In an 1884 letter from HPB to A.P. Sinnett, we find the following
comments about judging the letters from the Masters:

My dear Mr. Sinnett,

It is very strange that you should be ready to deceive yourself so
willingly. I have seen last night whom I had to see, and getting the
explanation I wanted I am now settled on points I was not only
doubtful about but positively averse to accepting. And the words in
the first line are words I am bound to repeat to you as a warning,
and because I regard you, after all, as one of my best personal

Now you have and are deceiving, in vulgar parlance,
bamboozling yourself about the letter received by me yesterday from
the Mahatma. The letter is from Him, whether written through a chela
or not; and -- perplexing as it may seem to you, contradictory
and "absurd," it is the full expression of his feelings and he
maintains what he said in it. 

For me it is surpassingly strange that you should accept as His only 
that which dovetails with your own feelings, and reject all that 
contradicts your own notions of the fitness of things....
