Dear Daniel and all

My views are:

Blavatsky said in the below letter quoted by D. Caldwell:
"Who except their authors, or those whom they employ as
their amanuenses (the chelas and disciples), can tell? "

And that was and is exactly min point.
It is the content of the letter and the ability of the receiver to turn it into use for the sake of humanity and something worthwhile.

  Hi Sufilight,

  Yes "could mean" would be better.

  Anyway, BELOW is what H.P. Blavatsky says during the same time-period 
  of Aug.-Oct 1888 [as the KH letter to Olcott] about the letters from 
  the her Masters.

  HPB writes in an article in LUCIFER:

  We have been asked by a correspondent why he should not "be free to
  suspect some of the so-called 'precipitated' letters as being
  forgeries," giving as his reason for it that while some of them bear
  the stamp of (to him) undeniable genuineness, others seem from their
  contents and style, to be imitations. This is equivalent to saying
  that he has such an unerring spiritual insight as to be able to
  detect the false from the true, though he has never met a Master,
  nor been given any key by which to test his alleged communications.
  The inevitable consequence of applying his untrained judgment in
  such cases, would be to make him as likely as not to declare false
  what was genuine, and genuine what was false. Thus what criterion
  has any one to decide between one "precipitated" letter, or another
  such letter? Who except their authors, or those whom they employ as
  their amanuenses (the chelas and disciples), can tell? For it is
  hardly one out of a hundred "occult" letters that is ever written by
  the hand of the Master, in whose name and on whose behalf they are
  sent, as the Masters have neither need nor leisure to write them;
  and that when a Master says, "I wrote that letter," it means only
  that every word in it was dictated by him and impressed under his
  direct supervision. Generally they make their chela, whether near or
  far away, write (or precipitate) them, by impressing upon his mind
  the ideas they wish expressed, and if necessary aiding him in the
  picture-printing process of precipitation. It depends entirely upon
  the chela's state of development, how accurately the ideas may be
  transmitted and the writing-model imitated. 

  Thus the non-adept recipient is left in the dilemma of uncertainty, 
  whether, if one letter is false, all may not be; for, as far as 
  intrinsic evidence goes, all come from the same source, and all are 
  brought by the same mysterious means. But there is another, and a far 
  worse condition implied. For all that the recipient of "occult" 
  letters can possibly know, and on the simple grounds of probability 
  and common honesty, the unseen correspondent who would tolerate one 
  single fraudulent line in his name, would wink at an unlimited 
  repetition of the deception. And this leads directly to the 
  following. All the so- called occult letters being supported by 
  identical proofs, they have all to stand or fall together. If one is 
  to be doubted, then all have, and the series of letters in 
  the "Occult World," "Esoteric Buddhism," etc., etc., may be, and 
  there is no reason why they should not be in such a case-
  frauds, "clever impostures," and "forgeries," . . . .
