The Mahatma Letters to A. P. Sinnett

Letter No. 103

Received Allahabad, {before February 11, 1883} 

To accomplish a plan like the one in hand many agencies must be employed and failure in any one direction jeopardises the results though it may not defeat it. We have had various checks and may have more. But observe: first — that two points are auspicious — thanks to kind Providence: Allen has become friendly, and a friend of yours (I believe) is Resident at Kashmir. And second that until the Maharajah of Kashmir — the prince first on the programme — has been sounded the vital point will not have been touched. He — the first as I say on the programme has been left to the last! Not much was expected from others and thus far each of the others who has been approached has failed to respond. Why do not the chelas (?) do as they are told? If chelas neglect orders, and strained sense of delicacy interferes, how without miracle can results be expected! I have telegraphed you to await Olcott's coming because it is best that you should work together at Calcutta to try and set things in motion. One word from you to the Resident would have been sufficient — but you are proud as all your race. Olcott will be at Calcutta about the 20th. Do not listen to the old woman — she becomes weak-headed when left to herself. But M⸫ will take her in hand.
