If this can be of any use or help to Dr. Hübbe Schleiden – though I doubt it – I, the humble undersigned Fakir certify that the “Secret Doctrine” is dictated to Upasika partly by myself and partly by my Brother K.H.
Context and background
Mr. Jinarajadasa provided this foreword to the Hübbe-Schleiden letters:
THE four letters which next follow were received by Dr. Hübbe Schleiden, one of the first members of the T.S. in Germany. I have copied them direct from the originals which are in Germany, and which were kindly loaned to me by Herr Driessen to whom they were left by Dr. Hübbe Schleiden. The first letter was received in the train, on August 1, 1884, as he and Colonel Olcott were travelling to Dresden. It is evident that the other letters were received after the issue by the Society for Psychical Research of their report charging H.P.B. with forging the script of the Masters.
