Sir, The least we can do for a person who has devoted her whole life to serve us and the cause we have at heart is to preserve her body and health for her whenever she may need it again . . . for such is the wish of all of us . . . Perish the Theosophical Society rather than be ungrateful to H.P.B.

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.
