The following statement also requires that the handwriting of Mahatma Koot Hoomi should occur independently of the agency of Madame Blavatsky.


I was at headquarters very often during my sojourn with my friend H. H., the Thakore Sahib of Wadhwan at Madras, whither we had gone last March for the celebration of his marriage with the daughter of the Hon. Gujpati Row.  One day I asked Mr. D. M. Mavalankar to let me put a letter from me to my revered Master K. H. in the Shrine.  It was in a closed envelope and was regarding private personal matters, which I need not lay before the public.  Mr. Damodar allowed me to put the letter in the Shrine.  The day after I visited again the Shrine in company with my wife.  On opening the Shrine I did find my letter unopened, but addressed to me in blue pencil, while my original superscription: “My Revered Master” had a pencil line running through it.  This was in the presence of Mr. Mavalankar, Dr. Hartmann and others.  The envelope was intact.  I opened it, and on the unused portion of my note was an answer from my Master K. H. in his, to me, familiar handwriting.  I should very much like to know how others will explain this, when as a fact both Founders were thousands of miles away.
