Page 1 transcription, image, and notes

You may stop till beginning of next week and go with Mrs. Gebhard but you have to be [in] Paris on Tuesday [at] latest. Send for letters and tell Judge. You have made yourself an irreconcilable enemy of Anna Kingsford, so now there’s no help for it. Ask Sinnett to help you on Secret Doctrine at once if he and others would learn more of occultism. *undeciphered phrase*




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.[2]

The final phrase of the letter could not be deciphered except for the words "Go to."[3]

Physical description of letter

The original of this letter was in the possession of Herr Driessen as of 1925. It is not known whether the letter is still extant.
