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

Letter No. 190

Publication Office of the "Theosophist,"
Breach Candy, Bombay, India,

4th September, 1882.

A. P. Sinnett, Esq.,
The Tendril, Simla.

My dear Sir,

I am very sorry to learn that my last long letter has offended you. Personally for you I have always entertained the highest regard, and as Mme. Blavatsky might tell you I have never lost an opportunity to express to her and to others sentiments of great admiration for you on account of your devotion to the Cause of Theosophy and to the Brothers. My last letter was meant not for you but for Mr. Hume; but as I find I have thereby hurt you, I beg to be excused for the same. I wrote it when I was under a feeling of excitement to see the Brothers and Mme. B. talked of so lightly and myself accused in plain language of forgery. But to offend you in any way — you who have all along been doing every thing in your power for the Society — was as far from my mind as to commit a forgery or a murder. I hope therefore that this letter of apology will atone for my unconscious sin. I can assure upon my word that not a single syllable of what I wrote in my last, applied to you personally. Now however that I see my fault in having given way to a feeling of despair and annoyance, I cannot do better than apologise for the same.

With kind regards,
Believe me,
Ever yours sincerely,
Damodar K. Mavalankar.
