C..W. Leadbeater testifies HPB did NOT Fake Mahatma Letters.

In a number of postings on Theos-Talk, Anand has told readers his
views about the Mahatma Letters.

He heads one posting with this subject title:

"Why did Blavatsky materialize fake Mahatma Letters?"

Another posting he gives with this subject heading:

"Blavatsky's factory of fake Mahatma Letters"

In one posting Anand declares:

Blavatsky materialized her own words in the handwriting of the
Masters, signed them with Masters' names and then told that they were
Mahatma letters. In today's world this would be called as PLAIN
FORGERY. It is like X writing something, imitating Y's handwriting,
and signing it as Y. This is actually AN OFFENSE.

Compare Anand's above words with what Mr. Leadbeater himself wrote on
this subject.

I quote BELOW what C.W. Leadbeater tells his readers in his book HOW

I could give you many instances in which she [H.P. Blavatsky] was
accused of deception, and I can tell you exactly what it was that
really happened, and can assure you that there was NO FRAUD WHATEVER
in the matter. That much I DO KNOW FOR MYSELF?.

He [Richard Hodgson of the Society for Psychical Research] decided
against H. P. B. in regard to the letters which came from the
Masters, saying that she had written them herself. I have myself
received such letters when she was thousands of miles away. I have
seen them come in her presence, and I have seen them come when she
was far away, and I know by irrefutable evidence that she did NOT
write those letters. I tell you this because I think it is valuable
for you to be able to say that you have seen or known of someone who
is willing to bear personal testimony that there was NO FRAUD about
such things. The testimony of one eye-witness outweighs the PREJUDICE
of many people [like Anand????] who, not being present, hear these
things only at third or thirteenth hand.
Quoted from:

This is testimony from the man whom Anand has repeatedly declared to
be the greatest occultist-saint of all times.

Yet it is interesting that Anand dismisses Leadbeater's defense of
H.P. Blavatsky and the Mahatma letters.

It would appear that Anand believes that Leadbeater simply didn't
know what he was writing about although Leadbeater assures his
readers that "there was NO FRAUD WHATEVER in the matter. That much I
