Who is this "most"? Certainly not the modern handwriting experts and
style analysts, who, almost unanimously, state that HPB could NOT have
been the author, and that that Hodgson report was made up entirely from
biased sources. Note that the people who Hodgson used to claim that
Blavatsky's handwriting matched that of the Mahatma's NEVER SAW A SINGLE
DOCUMENT THAT BLAVATSKY POSITIVELY WROTE, only a set of documents that
Blavatsky claimed to be forgeries. And they never saw the actual
Mahatma letters, only hand-drawn copies prepared by Hodgson.
This is not to say that the Mahatmas are who they say they are, simply
that Blavatsky was NOT the one who wrote the letters.
