The following account of a letter seen in the process of materialisation is part of a communication to ourselves from Mr. Mohini M. Chatterji, dated December 3rd, 1884. _______
At Bombay, in 1882, I witnessed a most remarkable instance of materialisation of letter. I was in a room with Mr. Damodar and two other friends. Two or three feet from us Mr. Damodar was writing at a table; we were otherwise engaged. Mr. Damodar suddenly called out to us. We went up to the table, and saw a letter in the process of materialisation; it seemed to grow. First was seen a small bit, which expanded until an envelope was fully formed. It was addressed to one of us in the familiar handwriting of a Mahatma. The addressee took it up, and found there were in reality two letters, but so closely pressed together as to be easily mistaken for one. In fact, he was not sure that the second letter, which was to me, did not form itself in his hand. It is to be stated that Madame Blavatsky was not in the room at the time of this occurrence.
