You are right—it is more meritorious to do one’s duty without any forethought of reward than to be bargaining for pay for one’s deeds. You are young, my friend, and have long years before you. You have worked unselfishly and with great profit to both your country and the good cause. And we thank you. Return now home, and whatever trouble may seem to brood over you, remember I am with you.

Mr. Jinarajadasa provided this background information:

Mr. Ramaswamier arrived in Bombay with H.P.B. on November 25, 1882. On December 1, he received a letter from his Master, which is probably this, as it tells him to return home, which he did after the Seventh Anniversary Meeting held on December 7.[2]

Physical description of letter

Mr. Jinarajadasa wrote of the Ramaswamier letters:

I do not know where the original letters are now. He died in 1893, devoted as ever to his Master and the T.S..[3]

Publication history

In December, 1894, a son of his published the letters, with a facsimile of one of them, in an attack on the T.S. , which bore the title, "Isis Further Unveiled." I reprint the letters from this pamphlet.[4]
