	Whether or not they were written by adepts, I, for one, would be
extremely surprised if Blavatsky wrote the Mahatma Letters. There were a
set of Victorian era prejudices in Blavatsky's writings which were
noticebly absent in the Mahatma letters (and prejudices in them that
were absent in Blavatsky's writings). As I believe that Blavatsky was
unaware of these prejudices, I can't see how she could have kept them
out of the Mahatma Letters.
