Ask him in the name of the Dhyan and Chohan Rimbochey what ails him! There he is: “five pages,” and not one word about sending C.C.M. Hume’s letters, keeping them confidential and sending them back without fail. Make him add that he asks C.C.M. to show the two letters to Sinnett and consult with him as to the best course to be adopted with Hume. Let him write that his Gurujee M. orders him to warn Massey whether he believes in us or no not to believe in Hume who will ruin him psychically.

Commentary about this letter
Mr. Jinarājadāsa provided this foreword on the series of letters numbered 28-45:
I have arranged the letters which follow, so far as possible, in the order in which they were received. On some, Colonel Olcott has made a memorandum of the date. For others, I have been able to get the date from his Diaries. There are a few, however, of which I am fairly certain as to the year, because of the first script of Master M. referred to already [see Morya:Writing style], but there is no indication anywhere as to the month. Some of the letters bear no signature.
