It is certainly possible.  G. H. Estabrooks duplicated it and wrote  about 
the phenomena in his Hypnotism.  Now, in his experiment, he was the  only one 
able to see what he created, but it would not be that difficult for the  skilled 
operator to make something others would see as well.

Master, show that  form to people, and MAKING THEM FEEL that Master
had visited them or met  them. This I am giving you as one possibility
behind seeing Master  physically or astrally.

Just as Blavatsky could materialize letters,  perhaps she could also
create a form of the Master, GIVING THE IMPRESSION  to concerned
individuals that Master visited them and gave letter.

I  know some people here will say that I am stretching my imagination
too  much. But, I think, TRUE RESEARCHERS of such phenomena won't deny
such  possibilities and will consider seriously before concluding that
REAL  Master visited those individuals and handed over  letters.

Now let us consider another case of the Mahatma  appearing.

The famous spiritualistic medium William Eglinton gives  testimony to 
the appearance of Master Koot Hoomi.

Eglinton had left  India and was on a steamship in the Indian Ocean 
when the following  happened:

On  the 22nd March, 1882, I was at sea, having left Ceylon about 6 
p.m. the  same day. I occupied a deck cabin forward under the bridge, 
which one of  the officers had kindly placed at my disposal. About ten 
o'clock I was in  this cabin undressing preparatory to sleeping on 
deck, my back being to  the open door. On turning round to make my 
exit, I found the entrance  barred by what I took, at first sight, to 
be a khitmaghur or native  butler. Thinking he had come on some 
message, I waited for him to speak,  but as he did not do so, and 
deeming his manner insolent from his not  having demanded entrance, 
and not paying the deference usual to Europeans,  I angrily told him, 
in Hindustani, to go away; whereupon he stepped into  the cabin, 
grasped me by the right hand, and gave me the grip of a Master  Mason, 
before I had sufficiently recovered from my astonishment. I  requested 
him to tell me why he had intruded upon me and to state his  business. 
Speaking in perfect English he deliberately informed me he was  "Koot 
Hoomi Lal Singh," and I was at the moment so profoundly impressed  
with his general appearance, his knowledge of Freemasonry, and the  
statement that he really was the person, mystic, or Adept of whom I  
had heard so much during my residence in India, that without  
hesitation I accepted him as such. We then entered into conversation  
of some length, of no particular importance to anyone but myself, but  
it proved to me that he was intimately acquainted with both the  
Spiritualistic and Theosophical movements, as well as with friends of  
mine in India. He was in every respect an intelligent man, perfectly  
formed, and in nowise differing, in outward semblance at any rate,  
from the thousands of natives one sees in the East. Nor was it  
hallucination, for I was in full possession of all my faculties; and  
that it was not a subjective vision is proved by the grasp of the  
hand, and the very evident materiality of the figure. Some little  
thing - it may have been a ruse of my visitor - attracted my 
attention  from him for a moment, for I was criticising him keenly, 
and when I turned  my head again - he was gone! Two steps took me to 
the open door, where I  had the advantage of scanning both the fore 
and aft decks, but I could  observe no one in the act of retreating, 
although no living being could  have in the time escaped from the 
range of my vision. The next day I  searched the ship, even going down 
into the shaft-tunnel to find a person  in appearance like the man I 
had seen on the previous night, but without  obtaining the slightest 
clue to his  identity....
Quoted  from: 

In  THE MAHATMA LETTERS, Master KH writes that he indeed did "visit" 
William  Eglinton onboard his ship.

But Anand appealing to the "true researcher"  believes that one should 
consider the possibility that HPB in Bombay  created the form of the 
Master and showed the form to Eglinton who was on  a steam ship in the 
Indian Ocean.

In other words, Blavatsky MADE  HIM FEEL that the Master had visited
