[There is a communication from K. H. written across the lines of H. P. B.'s letter. This appears here in bold type. — Ed.]
Mr dear Mr. Sinnett,
You are right. All or nothing is their motto. And why should you subject yourself to daily torture? K. H. will correspond with you the same as he does now if it is all you want.
The "Vega"? Not Nordenskiold's Vega that went North Pole and passed through Siberia but Eglinton's Vega on which he sailed for England. By this time and as I write [to] you know all, since you received this morning Mrs. Gordon's telegram about her having had a letter from Eglinton drop on her nose last night, with remarks from the Bosses and my humble self. Last night between 8 and 9 evening I received two letters from Eglinton direct in the presence of 7 witnesses from the roof. One was for me, the other for Mrs. Gordon. He asked me to send it over to her in a natural way, but K. H. wanted me to send it off immediately and I did so. The letter from E. and my two visiting cards which I wrote before my guests last night at 8 1/2 and the Boss' remarks were all at Howra in a few seconds. That's all. "Only that and nothing more."
K. H. says he saw Eglinton and secured him. Now remains to be seen what kind of "guides" E. will hook on K. H.
I do not feel well. I am sick, bilious, dyspeptic and feel mad with the whole universe. I do not know how I can go to Madras with such a heat.
My love to dear Bossess. If I but knew to write as she does I would be a happy woman.
Yours in moonshine
H. P. Blavatsky.
