HIMALAYAN AND OTHER MAHATMAS.
(An Open Letter to Madame Blavatsky.)
By Rama Sourindro Gargya Deva.
(We know nothing as yet about the writer of this letter.)

I have lived with Him; and some of us, Chelas, whose names from time to time have appeared in your journal, still live under their protection and in their abodes. I, the writer, am one of the privileged.
