My good friend; tho' Mr. Eglington has promised to return by the end of June he cannot do so — after the danger that has threatened him at Calcutta on the very day of his departure — unless he is thoroughly protected against any such disgraceful recurrence. If Mr. Hume is anxious to have him, let him for want of something better — offer him the place of his private secretary, for a year or so, now that Mr. Davison is away. If you or Mr. Hume are really anxious to see me — (or rather my astral Self) there's a chance
for you. H.P.B. is too old and not passive enough. Besides she has done too many services to be forced into it. With Mr. Eglington, and he willing, the thing would become easy. Profit then by the chance offered; in a year more it WILL BE TOO LATE.
London, April 27. To Mr. A. P. Sinnett, Editor Pioneer, Allahabad.
