I'm sorry to point out that the first quote you gave was O.A. Hume's
uncorrected understanding of the issue, not K.H. explanation to Sinnett.
It's from ML: 14, being "Letter from K.H. Answering Queries. Received
by A.O.H., July 9th, 1882."
The second quote is from the same letter and is by K.H., but does not
clarify the issue.

The dumb races will acquire our human speech, on our globe, on which
from the 4th race language is perfected and knowledge in physical
things increases. At this half-way point of the fourth round, Humanity
passes the axial point of the minor manwantaric circle. (Moreover, at
the middle point of every major or root race evolution of each round,
man passes the equator of his course on that planet, the same rule
applying to the whole evolution or the seven rounds of the minor
Manwantara -- 7 rounds divided by 2 = 3 1/2 rounds). At this point
then the world teems with the results of intellectual activity and
spiritual decrease. In the first half of the fourth race, sciences,
arts, literature and philosophy were born, eclipsed in one nation,
reborn in another. Civilization and intellectual development whirling
in septenary cycles as the rest; while it is but in the latter half
that the spiritual Ego will begin its real struggle with body and mind
to manifest its transcendental powers. Who will help in the
forthcoming gigantic struggle? Who? Happy the man who helps a helping
