Dear Col. Olcott,
I have been asked by some friends to assist in the issue at Allahabad of a new journal under the title of "Karma." Now as it appears to me very desirable to avoid anything like rivalry or competition with the Theosophist I have thought that it might be possible to enter into some arrangement by which the Theosophist could be purchased by the new journal without the Supplement or Journal of the T.S. It is proposed that the new journal should be published at a much lower rate than the Theosophist so as to obtain a wider circulation.
If you think the scheme at all feasible (sic) I should be glad to hear your views on the subject. If an arrangement was (sic) come to and you thought it best there would be no need to make the transaction public.
Yours very truly,
