Yes, but after Vernon Harrison, and having the texts and books written  by Michael Gomes and Leslie Price, among others, there is no need any longer for that.

We are not in 1888 any more.  We are in the seconde semester of 2006. Everyone with a working brain knows, by now, HPB was an authentic person. 

Regards,  Carlos.

Assunto:Theos-World H.P. Blavatsky on the Letters of the Masters: Part 2

> In Oct. 1888, Madame Blavatsky must have felt it necessary to
> discuss openly and publicly the following issue in the pages of 
> LUCIFER where she writes:
> ==========================================================
> ...We have been asked by a correspondent why he should not "be free
> to suspect some of the so-called 'precipitated' letters as being
> forgeries," giving as his reason for it that while some of them bear
> the stamp of (to him) undeniable genuineness, others seem from their
> contents and style, to be imitations. 
> This is equivalent to saying that he has such an unerring spiritual 
> insight as to be able to detect the false from the true, though he 
> has never met a Master, nor been given any key by which to test his 
> alleged communications. The inevitable consequence of applying his 
> untrained judgment in such cases, would be to make him as likely as 
> not to declare false what was genuine, and genuine what was false. 
> Thus what criterion has any one to decide between one "precipitated" 
> letter, or another such letter? 
> Who except their authors, or those whom they employ as
> their amanuenses (the chelas and disciples), can tell? For it is
> hardly one out of a hundred "occult" letters that is ever written by
> the hand of the Master, in whose name and on whose behalf they are
> sent, as the Masters have neither need nor leisure to write them;
> and that when a Master says, "I wrote that letter," it means only
> that every word in it was dictated by him and impressed under his
> direct supervision. Generally they make their chela, whether near or
> far away, write (or precipitate) them, by impressing upon his mind
> the ideas they wish expressed, and if necessary aiding him in the
> picture-printing process of precipitation. It depends entirely upon
> the chela's state of development, how accurately the ideas may be
> transmitted and the writing-model imitated. 
> Thus the non-adept recipient is left in the dilemma of uncertainty, 
> whether, if one letter is false, all may not be; for, as far as 
> intrinsic evidence goes, all come from the same source, and are 
> brought by the same mysterious means. 
> But there is another, and a far worse condition implied. For all 
> that the recipient of "occult" letters can possibly know, and on the 
> simple grounds of probability and common honesty, the unseen 
> correspondent who would tolerate one single fraudulent line in his 
> name, would wink at an unlimited repetition of the
> deception. 
> And this leads directly to the following. All the so-
> called occult letters being supported by identical proofs, they have
> all to stand or fall together. If one is to be doubted, then all
> have, and the series of letters in the "Occult World," "Esoteric
> Buddhism," etc., etc., may be, and there is no reason why they
> should not be in such a case - frauds, "clever impostures,"
> and "forgeries," such as the ingenuous though stupid agent [Richard 
> Hodgson] of the "S.P.R." has made them out to be, in order to raise 
> in the public estimation the "scientific" acumen and standard of
> his "Principals."...
