Dear friends,
In 1884, while still infiltrated in Adyar and living  with the theosophists,  Alexis and Emma Coulomb  ? who are now among Daniel Caldwell?s favourite ?historical sources? ? started trying to get money by dishonest means, which included blackmail. 
In May 17th, Damodar Mavalankar ? Joint Recording Secretary ?  had to  have the following  note published in the ?Madras Mail?: 
?Neither the Theosophical Society, nor Madame Blavatsky, nor Colonel Olcott, nor any other  member or officer of that Society, will be responsible for any debts incurred in their name,  either by Madame Coulomb or Mr. A. Coulomb.   By order.  DAMODAR K. MAVALANKAR,  Joint Recording Secretary &  Treasurer. Hd-Qtrs., Theosophical Society, Adyar (Madras) 15th May 1884.? (1) 
Ten days after that, the Coulombs were forced to leave the premises of the Theosophical Society. The  two scoundrels then sold forged letters to the ?Christian College? in Madras,  in which HPB is made to confess all kinds of forgery and falsehood. (2)   
Later on, Mr. V. Soloviof ?  who also had infiltrated the movement ? added more material to the false accusations and forged letters fabricated by the Coulombs.  In order to escape Justice, Soloviof did this only after HPB?s death.  
These three persons have been freely used by Daniel Caldwell and John Algeo as sources of ?historical information?,  and even as sources of texts purportedly written by HPB, in which HPB ?incriminates herself?.  
Of course, in doing  this, Algeo and Caldwell are against all theosophical historians and leaders in all time, from Henry Olcott down to Radha Burnier.  

As  there is no factual basis whatsoever to make circulate those old charges against HPB, there must be some other reason,  probably  ?political?, for Caldwell and Algeo to do that.   
Best regards,   Carlos Cardoso Aveline
