      Perry,

      Thanks. I fully agree.

      No one could think HPB was perfect after knowing anything about her life. It is only about having respect for her. Though not an Adept, she was an honest woman, a decent person, a brave soul. She deserves respect -- that's about all.

      Trying to "downsize" HPB to the moral level of a C. W. Leadbeater by repeating forged documents is tantamount to slander.


      Regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline
