First of all, I did not mention that you could comment on the TSA with an intention of being ironical.

I respect you and if we had differences of visions in the past -- my 'memory' for personal disagreements erases such past events almost as soon as they happen.    

As to Algeo's work being slanderous, I am based in the facts as he himself states them in his edition of the so-called "HPB Letters".

Acording to the informations Algeo himself provides, some 20 per cent of the "letters" he publishes in that volume cannnot be traced to HPB, but their origin is basically V. Solovyov, id est, a criminal liar as everyone knows, a slanderer called by H. S. Olcott "fifty times worse than the Coulombs" ("Old Diary Leaves"). Other false letters are traced to the clever persons of the London SPR in the 19th century,whose bias and frauds have been revealed by Vernon Harrison,  Leslie Price and other SPR members  in the 1980s. 

Having worked for ten years with an NGO on environmental law enforcement, including in the ecosystems themselves, I am used to work with evidences. I will try to bring more facts here of the unhappy and unfortunate "work" done by John Algeo.

And I do that not only because you asked me to do so.   I do that because I  hope that, if Algeo will ever publish a SECOND volume of "Letters of HPB", he will improve his work; and, if he will ever publish a second edition of that  first volume with "Letters of HPB -- False and True", he will correct some of his more slanderous editorial practices. 

As you know, Radha Burnier agreed with me that those Letters are "obviously spurious" (her words).   And the first national secretary of the Adyar TS in Brazil (not the "president") wrote a letter to Algeo with her protests over the issue.   

Among several other persons from several countries. 

I have nothing to say about John Algeo as a person. But his editorial practice has been treacherous and I would be happy to see it corrected by himself.  

Peaceful regards,  Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
