I have a question regarding this first paragraph, it sounds like you
are speaking that the desire for independence was metaphorical. 
However, in the Mahatma Letters, there are numerous instances of some
very non-metaphorical statements regarding the British.  In perusing
Letter #81 of the ML, there seems to be nothing metaphorical about
what KH is asking Sinnett to do.  Is that a metaphor for what?  That
looks very much like political operative work.  So with evidence of
political work in writing I would ask "so what?"  What makes political
work wrong or undesirable?

Regarding the tentative nature of Johnson's statements.  That's what I
would expect when someone is suggesting an alternate theory.  To state
something as an absolute truth when it may or may not be is unwise. 
Wouldn't you agree?  Or is HPB and her teachers to be worshipped as
some kind of tin goddess?  The 1900 Letter to Besant is very clear on
that view.

Thanks for your patience.
