My dear Madame,
I beg to thank you for your card and your kind wishes. I sent you a box with stamps also some 6 weeks ago, which I trust you have received. My father is better but my mother has taken his place — it is nothing serious at all. I suppose we must all pay for the sudden change in the weather.
I suppose you heard that the H. B. of L.* was in the hands of the Jesuits and nice people they, and our mutual members should be warned. I hear for instance that Zorn belongs to that Society also.
I hope you feel as well as circumstances permit and that the Secret Doctrine is going on well.
With kindest regards from all, I remain,
Yours very truly,
By post I forward some coins which Mr. Soloviof gave my father in Paris.
