Page 1 transcription, image, and notes
Brave soldiers need neither orders nor constant encouragement. Pursue the lines laid down long ago and "we will look out for results." As said by me in S.D., Ātma is Karma,so all results flowing from sincere work will be right, if you are detached. I have spoken to Heliodore in the West, and she may go to India in '93. Be wise and prudent and expect nothing for this is an age of darkness. Thou my Son cannot be too careful. Beware of the "iron rule." You are to sow seed. Pay all your attention to that and force not the growth. Be ever gentle with the rebellious disciples in your care as we with you. Blessings.

Commentary about this letter
In this letter H.P.B. speaks of Annie Besant as “the soul of honour and uncompromisingly truthful,” and describes her heart as “one single unbroken diamond, . . . transparent so that anyone can see how filled to the brim it is with pure, unadulterated theosophy and enthusiasm.” ”UNSELFISHNESS AND ALTRUISM,” continues H.P.B., “is Annie Besant’s name, but with me and for me she is Heliodore, a name given to her by a Master, and that I use with her, it has a deep meaning. It is only a few months she studies occultism with me in the innermost group of the E.S., and yet she has passed far beyond all others.
Heliodore isthe name of a yellow gem stone that may help to trigger mental telepathy and creativity, and which resonates with the crown chakra.
