The "experts" (one of whom was not an expert by any standard of 
assessment) were badgered by Hodgson into making those statements.

It was Besant who said Blavatsky disguised her handwriting for 
mahatma letters. In the case of the Prayah letter she did not 
disguie her handwriting, but sent it out in her own script. In that 
case, as in others, the content of the letter is supposed to have 
been that of the mahatma, and not hers.
