Konstantin on the HPB Letters

The main question is that Algeo and Caldwell have been publishing violent slanders against HPB, as if written by her, and UNIDENTIFIED, or nearly UNIDENTIFIED as false material.
Able slanderers, as you know, don't SAY things. They suggest. They say "it might be true".
Publishing the same material, identified as slanders and false texts, is different from slandering HPB. Boris de Zirkoff did this in the Collected Writings.
