Dear Mr. Caldwell, 

You are assuming the credibility of HPB, Olcott and their inner 
circle of confidential associates. When I had any doubt about them, 
their character, motives, means and goals, I gave them the benefit of 
it. However, after studying them and the genesis and early years of 
their Theosophical Society, all doubt was removed, and I concluded 
that they were all involved in at best a delusion, with pervasive 
elements of deception, and at worst, a complete and out-right fraud. 
They deceived each other, their followers, and the public in general 
as a regular course of action. Such deception, even when engaged in 
for what they clearly believed in as a noble cause, is pathological. 
Like many other 'occult' and Masonic conspiracies before and since 
(Joseph Smith and his Masonic Lodge inventing and testifying to the 
the Book of Mormon, etc), I see HPB and her friends as occultists who 
were carrying on the Masonic etc. tradition of conspiring to create a 
religion. Thus studying her / their esoteric writings should not be 
approached as if these were somehow sui generis from Ascended or 
World-Guiding Masters.
