Re: WHY DID DE ZIRKOFF CAST DOUBT ....?

There isn't any dispute about ES Instruction IV. Zirkoff's
"authority" is not that he was right on every fact, but that he had an
UNDERSTANDING of the literature, and what "fit in" and what didn't.
It seems obviously he saw some things in the later indstructions he
wasn't completely comfortable with, so made the remark.. The "phoney
KH letter" material in ES V, was From Blavatsky's ES meetings, so
differs from most or perhaps all the other material in this respect,
and thus stands out on that count alone.
