H. S. O.'s Reply.
Dear Mr. Lane Fox,
Yours of the 7th inst. has just reached me.
Your proposal to buy the Theosophist is so serious an one that I should not be willing to give you an answer before consulting Madam Blavatsky, whose interest in it you know. I shall therefore send on your note by the outgoing mail and — if you will kindly give me a permanent address — communicate her decision and my own in due course.
