If one believes this letter one must believe that it is the Masters that sit at the feet of Annie Besant and not the other way around. She has outshone Blavatsky, who was according to the Masters, the best available at the time. Funny, Besant was also around at the time? Why wasn't she selected???
Only explanation I can come up with as that Leadbeater had Besant under hypnotic control or she was easily swayed.

Annie Besant Under DELUDING Influences
In the 1900 letter to Annie Besant, Master Koot Hoomi wrote:
"Says a Tibetan proverb 'credulity breeds credulity and
ends in hypocrisy.'....The intense desire to see
Upasika [HPB] reincarnate at once has raised a
misleading mayavic ideation...."
"You have for some time been under deluding influences.
Shun pride, vanity and love of power. Be not guided
by emotion but learn to stand alone. Be accurate and
critical rather than credulous. The mistakes of the
past in the old religions must not be glossed over
with imaginary explanations...."
"The best corrective of error is an honest and
open-minded examination of all facts subjective
"You will have to leave a good deal of your emotions
and credulity before you become a safe guide among
the influences that will commence to work in the new
Now COMPARE and CONTRAST the above serious & sobering communication
from K.H. with what Charles Leadbeater said about Mrs. Besant:
"What can I say to you of your President [Annie
Besant] that you do not know already? Her colossal
intellect, her unfailing wisdom, her unrivalled
eloquence, her splendid forgetfulness of self,
her untiring devotion of work for others - all
these are but a small part of her greatness;
they are on the surface, they may be seen by all,
they leap to the eyes. But there are other qualities,
other powers, of which you cannot know, because they
pertain to the secrets of Initiation. She is a
pupil of our Masters; from the fount of Their
archaic wisdom she derives her own, the plans which
she is carrying out are Their plans for the welfare
of the world. THINK THEREFORE, HOW GREAT AN
HONOUR IT IS FOR YOU that you should be permitted
to work under her, for in doing so you are virtually
working under Them. THINK HOW WATCHFUL YOU SHOULD
BE TO MISS NO HINT WHICH FALLS FROM HER LIPS, to carry
out EXACTLY whatever instructions she may give to you.
Remember...there will be times when you cannot
understand her motives, for she is taking into account
many things which you cannot see and of which
she must not tell you. BUT WHETHER YOU UNDERSTAND
OR NOT, YOU WILL BE WISE TO FOLLOW HER IMPLICITLY, JUST
BECAUSE SHE KNOWS.
THIS IS NOT MERE SUPPOSITION ON MY PART, NO MERE
FLIGHT OF THE IMAGINATION; I HAVE STOOD BESIDE YOUR
PRESIDENT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE SUPREME DIRECTOR
OF EVOLUTION ON THIS GLOBE, AND I KNOW WHEREOF I
SPEAK. Let the wise hear my words, and act accordingly."
