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

Letter No. 82

Mr dear Mr. Sinnett,

Just read Redway's Catalogue and was perfectly struck and dumbfounded at seeing that he advertises that infamous lie of Mme Coulomb (see p. 16). I do not see the philosophy of it. Did you know it? I do not know how you will look at the thing — but certainly I will have nothing to do whatever with Redway unless he withdraws that advertisement. I rather publish Isis Unveiled in America, and not get one pie for it, than have my works advertised, and those of such good devoted theosophists as the Countess, along with such an infamous libel.

Please see seriously to it. I am writing to draw Olcott's attention to it. And I swear that I will try to put all the theosophists in India against having their books sold at Redway. It is an insult, a positive insult this. And the Countess thinks it disgusting. Can't you speak to the man?

Please answer this seriously.

H. P. Blavatsky.
