Context and background

Mr. Jinarajadasa provided these notes about this letter:

Transcribed from the original at Adyar. This occurs written across a folded letter written by H.P.B. at Elberfeld, 23 June 1886, to C.W. Leadbeater then in Ceylon. The Master’s message was precipitated in transit. The letter of H.P.B. to Mr Leadbeater was about an Indian chela of the Master, S. Krishnamachri, who was in Germany with her, but who turned against her. ‘The little man has failed’ refers to this individual, who thus ‘dropped out’. I have given a reproduction of H.P.B.’s letter and of the Master’s message to Mr Leadbeater precipitated in blue across it in my book, The K.H. Letters to C. W. Leadbeater.[2]

Physical description of letter

The original letter is preserved at the Adyar headquarters of the Theosophical Society.

Publication history

This letter was published in 1919 as Letter 37 in the first edition of Letters from the Masters of the Wisdom, 1881-1888, later known as the First Series.[3]
