The Letters of H. P. Blavatsky to A. P. Sinnett

Letter No. 109

M. . . . r dictates all the time about one "Grove F. R. S." (1855-6) who wrote Correlations of Physical Forces. Never heard of the man before! Was there ever an F. R. S. of that name? Has he written such a work? On imponderable Forces — that "cannot exist"? He was for a "P. G.," yet his occult insight was remarkable — he says. Shall you help me to find it out?

We are in — for Theosophist appeared with the name. I thought it would, but believing O. capable of anything — accepted it as possible.

I send you a curious letter from O. to read. He counts in the money now sent the £25 lent to Miss A. and which was already spent for D. N. in London. Thanks for all — papers and notices etc.

I do not want the work of Grove, only to know whether he was, and the character he bears among the men of Science. He was anathematised I hear, by the Royal Society.

H. P. Blavatsky.
