Hello Daniel,
If another volume is produced without these letters, this as far as I can see seems to be 
based on honourable and ethical reasons, as there is considerable doubt that HPB actually 
wrote the letters in question.

The Wheaton edition could easily have put the `Solovyoff's' letters into a separate chapter 
with sufficient preamble and background to clarify the nature of the letters to the reader.
