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

Letter No. 77A


Having received your letter of the 16th current I beg to inform you, that if you can show to my lawyer who will deliver you the present:

(1) Any letter of mine — from those I have written privately and confidentially to Mme. de Morsier without the remotest idea of publicity and delivered by her to you — in which letter I connect your client's name with any libellous epithet or sentence, or in which Miss ----'s name is mentioned by me;

(2) If out of the "hundred letters" from Mr. Mohini to Mdle. —— you claim to have in your possession, one single endearing sentence to her address is shown by you to the gentleman who will call on you, a sentence clear enough to lead to the conjecture and conclusion that he was or desired to be on such terms as are generally regarded by every honest person as improper and dishonourable between a married man and an unmarried female — in such case I shall acknowledge that I have been entirely misinformed as to the true state of the case, and will make Miss —— a full apology for any libellous term I have used. I believe Mr. Mohini innocent so far. Let it be shown to me that he is not — and I will be ready to acknowledge publicly my mistake.

H. P. Blavatsky.

To the lawyer. Now correct, remodel, and see how I can write it.
