I think that Leadbeater knew for long ago that the project failed but
had some secret reasons not to disclose it.
In "Masters and the Path" in the table where he enumerated the
greatest spiritual efforts for each century he doesn't mention the
coming of the World Teacher but the wide dissemination of "what we now
call esotericism" (we nevertheless continue to call it esotericism).
Earlier, in beginning of 1914, he leaves India for Australia (the
safest place for the rest of 20th century) and surprisingly, turns to
the older forms, which seemed already abandoned: masonic and church
rites. (In the earlier books he, while mentioning that they work,
didn't seem to lay any emphasis on them, regarding them as the
"fool-proof" form used to go safely through the bad times).
It seems that he somehow knew that period of world wars is
approaching, the "brave new world" under the leadership of WT is
delayed for indefinite time and the old forms and rites shall be for
some time more in use.
