Mary Gebhard (née L’Estrangge) (1832 - 1892). She married to Consul Gustav Gebhard in 1852. She made the acquaintance of Eliphas Levi and studied Kabbalah under his tuition until his death in 1875.

Mme. Blavatsky lived with the Gebhards from August to October 1884, and again in May and June, 1886.

She received a letter from Master K.H., and also saw the astral form of Master M. in a meeting of the London Lodge:

On the 7th of April last [1884], being, at a meeting of the Theosophical Society at Mr. Finch’s rooms, Lincoln’s Inn, I had a vision, in which I saw the Mahatma M. At the moment I was listening attentively to Colonel Olcott’s opening speech to the Society. I saw standing on my right side, a little in front, a very tall, majestic-looking person, whom I immediately recognised to be the Mahatma, from a picture I had seen of him in Mr. Sinnett’s possession. He was not clad in white, but it seemed to me to be some dark material with coloured stripes, which was wound round his form. The vision lasted only a few seconds. As far as I could learn, the only persons besides myself who had seen the Mahatma were Colonel Olcott, Mr. Mohini, and, of course, Madame Blavatsky.[1]
