References you brought here don't make SR's story untrue.
CWL did not say that HPB was "GIVEN OVER TO CHELAS"
HPB generally had habit of reacting and countering something written
against her. So her statements showing dissatisfaction about SR's are
consistent with her temperament.
Mahatma KH wrote in 1888, few years after CWL letter. Even this KH
letter does not make SR-CWL theory wrong because CWL also wrote that
it was "Tibet woman" who was occupying that body most of the time
indicating this "Tibet woman" was "agent". 
I was also thinking about absence of Masters KH and M in CWL letter in
1885. CWL might be referring Master D.K. as that Adept.
>From the references you gave it can be said that Master K.H. and M.
did use HPB as agent.
You tell us again and again that Masters corrected HPB's mistakes in
The Secrete Doctrine. But what happened to mistakes she obviously made
in her other writings like Isis Unveiled, Key to Theosophy, larger
number of her articles in magazines published by the TS ? Those
mistakes are still there. Daniel, why don't you warn readers of HPB's
writing that mistakes in other writings are not corrected ?
