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

Letter No. 83


Mr dear Mr. Sinnett,

Will you kindly do me a favour? See if you can change me the enclosed cheque from Bouton in some American Bank. If a telegram to New York is necessary, please cable (out of this money), I rather spend a pound or two than remain without money, as Olcott has stopped again sending. The first cheque from Bouton on the Pacific could not be paid here, nor in Frankfurt, as they knew nothing of Bank or Bouton, and so they sent it to New York and I have to whistle meanwhile. If you can have it changed and send me the money in English Bank notes, I would ask you to get for me (1) Wilson's Vishnu Purana (his other works I do not want) and then the best, the most complete work on Odin and the Scandinavian Mythology. I know nothing of the latter, and I have to refute many things in the former, for one that Odin "was far far anterior to the age of the Vedas!!"

I will send to you two or three chapt. of S.D. before I send them to Subba Row to India. I want you to see and read it for yourself before it passes through the hands of S. R., lest a Hodgson would say again that the S.D. was written by Subba Row as Isis presumably was. What I want now is WITNESSES.

Please see to the cheque, if you would not see the S.D. stopped once more for lack of pens and ink.

You never told me whether you received Bouton's letter I sent you, and what you think of it? Have you received it? Love to Mrs. Sinnett.

Yours ever
H. P. Blavatsky.
