NOTES:

Context and background

Mr. Jinarājadāsa provided this context:

The letter to Colonel Olcott, Letter 3, from the Brotherhood of Luxor, is signed by Tuitit Bey. He is mentioned several times by H.P.B., and I believe she travelled with Him in Egypt during her early wanderings. There is one letter of H.P.B., to Colonel Olcott, at the bottom of which appears in bold writing: "Approved. Tuitit Bey." He uses sometimes a striking seal, which is stamped in black, as is shown in Letter 3. when the Founders were passing through the Suez Canal, Colonel Olcott writes in his Diary, February 3, 1879: "The venerable T... B... passing near the canal sends me his greetings."

The short note which I print is cut off from the foot of a letter, which no longer exists. From a very slight indication, two dots and a stroke which remain, I should presume that the main letter was from the Master Serapis. At its foot appears, in a handwriting which I think is Tuitit Bey's, the letter which follows. After the word "Try," there is a design in black, white and brown, a small figure with rays encircling the head, and some symbols. The letter is not signed, but bears the oval seal of Tuitit Bey, as in Letter 3.[2]
