Dear Mr. Sinnett,
Madame is very much delighted, because having just been told to open her Russian paper which otherwise she never thinks of unfastening until she is in bed at night, she finds a long article about herself and her childhood which you can insert in the Memoirs, saying by whom they are written and that they are extracted from accompanying paper giving date etc. Nobody then can doubt their veracity. I am glad you like my Appeal; before reading it out please add following words which are underlined, they will make my meaning clearer. Mme. Gebhard writes that she has sent you her testimony, also a letter from Professor Coues saying that he can make the Astral bell ring — I have forwarded your letter to Mme. Jelihovsky.
When I saw Dr. Hartmann in Munich he told me that you had never answered a letter of his. I think this is a pity for though an eccentric man he is a very earnest Theosophist and devoted to H. P. B. A few words from you would I think please him greatly and at such a crisis every effort should be made to keep friends, they become such inveterate foes when turned against us. I am so glad the O. L. is regaining her equilibrium of mind. Yesterday she was able to do some good work.
Ever yr. sincerely,
Do you know what has become of Signor Damiani.
