Well, gentlemen, if you've read "The Masters and Their Emissaries: From HPB
to Guru Ma and Beyond" at
http://www.alpheus.org/html/articles/esoteric_history/story.html you might
have found the following documentation in footnote 2:
[The timing of this project is addressed in footnote 3 with a quote from
Blavatsky wrote in 1889:
"If the present attempt, in the form of our Society, succeeds better than
its predecessors have done, then it will be in existence as an organized,
living and healthy body when the time comes for the effort of the XXth
century. The general condition of men's minds and hearts will have been
improved and purified by the spread of its teachings, and, as I have said,
their prejudices and dogmatic illusions will have been, to some extent at
least, removed. Not only so, but besides a large and accessible literature
ready to men's hands, the next impulse will find a numerous and united body
of people ready to welcome the new torch-bearer of Truth. He will find the
minds of men prepared for his message, a language ready for him in which to
clothe the new truths he brings, an organization awaiting his arrival, which
will remove the merely mechanical, material obstacles and difficulties from
his path. Think how much one, to whom such an opportunity is given, could
accomplish. Measure it by comparison with what the Theosophical Society
actually has achieved in the last fourteen years, with out any of these
advantages and surrounded by hosts of hindrances which would not hamper the
new leader. Consider all this, and then tell me whether I am too sanguine
when I say that if the Theosophical Society survives and lives true to its
mission, to its original impulses through the next hundred years--tell me, I
say, if I go too far in asserting that earth will be a heaven in the
twenty-first century in comparison with what it is now!"

1889), pp. 306-307.

Good question. I will be looking forward for the documentation, too.
