Well, I think that X., J. and LQ were really correct when they pointed
out that JPG and C. were not at all compatible with HPL.
Based on modern analysis, while it is certainly possible that it might
have been a confederate of Blavatsky's, it is extremely unlikely (based
on analysis of style, usage, handwriting, etc.) that it was Blavatsky
herself. In addition, does it matter if it was written by Moria or by
somebody else with the same name? Both Moria and Koot Hoomi pretty much
stated that we are to judge them on what they wrote, not who they are.
