Dear Daniel and all

"would mean"?

How so? Is not rather "could mean"?

  Hi Sufilight,

  Well, below is one graphic example of what "through her
  agency" would mean:

  The testimony is that of C.W. Leadbeater and relates to
  the time period October 1884. He writes:

  ...I knew of no way to send this message to the Master [Koot Hoomi] 
  but to take it to Madame Blavatsky, and as she was to leave England 
  on the following day for India, I hastened up to London to see her.

  It was with difficulty that I induced her to read the letter, as she 
  said very decidedly that such communications were intended only for 
  the recipient. I was obliged to insist, however, and at last she read 
  it and asked me what I wished to say in reply. I answered to the 
  above effect, and asked her how this information could be conveyed to 
  the Master. She replied that He knew it already, referring of course 
  to the exceedingly close relation in which she stood with Him, so 
  that whatever was within her consciousness was also within His when 
  He wished it.

  She then told me to wait by her, and not to leave her on any account. 
  She adhered absolutely to this condition, even making me accompany 
  her into her bedroom when she went to put on her hat and, when a cab 
  was required, declining to allow me to leave the room and go to the 
  door to whistle for it. I could not at all understand the purpose of 
  this at the time, but afterwards I realized that she wished me to be 
  able to say that she had never been out of my sight for a moment 
  between the time when she read my letter from the Master and my 
  receipt of the reply to it. I remember as vividly as if it were 
  yesterday how I rode with her in that hansom cab, and the bashful 
  embarrassment that I felt, caused partly by the honour of doing so, 
  and partly by my fear that I must be inconveniencing her horribly, 
  for I was crushed side ways into a tiny corner of the seat, while her 
  huge bulk weighed down her side of the vehicle, so that the springs 
  were grinding all through the journey. Mr. and Mrs. Cooper-Oakley 
  were to accompany her on the voyage to India, and it was to their 
  house that I went with her very late that night-in fact, I believe it 
  was after mid-night, so I really ought to say very early the next 

  ...Even at that hour a number of devoted friends were gathered in 
  Mrs. Oakley's drawing-room to say farewell to Madame Blavatsky, who 
  seated herself in an easy-chair by the fireside. She was talking 
  brilliantly to those who were present, and rolling one of her eternal 
  cigarettes, when suddenly her right hand was jerked out towards the 
  fire in a very peculiar fashion, and lay palm upwards. She looked 
  down at it in surprise, as I did myself, for I was standing close to 
  her, leaning with an elbow on the mantel-piece: and several of us saw 
  quite clearly a sort of whitish mist form in the palm of her hand and 
  then condense into a piece of folded paper, which she at once handed 
  to me, saying: "There is your answer." Every one in the room crowded 
  round, of course, but she sent me away outside to read it, saying 
  that I must not let anyone see its contents.
