Carlos, I will respond to your latest message within the body of the  message.
))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))Carlos, you  said:


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 
*****************You have misread my intention. I was not being ironical, or  
sarcastic. I was merely telling you about my present situation at the TS. 
Since  I no longer work at headquarters, I am not privvy to what I used to be 
privvy  to.................We never have had differences of visions in the past, 
that is  your supposition. I respect your passion for theosophy and I respect 
your  knowledge about theosophy. I sincerely hope that you will do better when 
you  publish a book or article and that you will not be judged unfairly or 
unduly  criticized for your efforts.

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" 
............I believe that he uses the small word "may" when he refers to  
some of the letters.........there is some attempt to disclaim or distance  
himself from the obvious difficulties he publishes  about.-----------------------

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.. 
.................Other evidences would be welcomed, since so far I do not  
believe that Algeo has deliberately slandered anyone. Publishing letters written 
 by others, slanderers or not, does not indicate his own beliefs, nor does it 
 indicate that he agrees with the published letters. Just because there can 
be  found FACTS does not necessarily indicate  TRUTH.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 
end of my comments..............and you continue: 
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 

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.
