NOTE: Bold text was omitted from the published version.

If you have done with your misanthropy, doubts and regrets, then prove it by writing to those who love you best. An accepted chela does not become free from temptations, probations and trials. Happy is he who crosses the great gulf between himself & us – unscared with doubt and free from the pollution of suspicion. Do you know? Meditate upon it, son, meditate, & as soon as you can, come & see us in our new home – the occult room.

As for [conferring] you an increase of psychic powers, that will came in time of & cannot come so soon. We have no right to force & no good can come of forcing nature. She has been already generous to you.

My blessings be with you.

My [son] – M.

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]
