               Transcript of dead Mrs Blavatsky's message
               to W Judge enclosed in Judge's letter:

               "HPB.  Jany 3 1895

               Yours is not a (bootless) or fruitless) errand.
               You have nobly sustained our cause in the
               crisis.  Be encouraged.  Well did Master know
               the staunch fearless attributes of your soul when
               he directed me to make you leader of our craft in
               America.  As the centre of our force is attacked
               the more does our light work for the right.  Victory
               is ours.  All will end for the good of all.  Mistakes
               have been made but you have not gone far from
               the lines laid down by Master.  My desire is for
               you to be careful about sending out Instructions
               to the E.S. for treacherous and unworthy persons
               are within the gates, & all new ideas will be
               appropriated by the other side after x x x x.  The
               forces are out and annihilation is the only thing
               that can interfere.

               Let me tell you some of the things I have learned
               since I absented myself from the outer world.  Many
               of the problems of life that should have been solved
               if we had been more together have come up before me
               & I have learned much.  I am, next to the American
               work, interested in Spain.  Ireland can take care of
               itself.  In the pine woods I have found a lodge which
               I knew something about before I went away.  There,
               seven chelas & the light they show that some day will
               be better known, I will describe to you at our next
               meeting.  There is much connected with it that can be
               used for irradiating forces in this country for there is
a subtle connection.  Be sure that at our next meeting
it is not forgotten x x x x   Slowly the light from this
Lodge is being thrown over Spain & I see that from the
old corpse of bigotry superstition & credulity will be
reared a temple of light which will unite its forces with
that of America & Ireland & from these three points
I know that humanity will be saved. x x x

This battle of light & darkness in our midst seems but
small (little) when I view the work before us x x x and the
ends and prospects of our work shall stem the tide of this
cruel & unworthy persecution.  Under all work shall
stem the tide of this cruel & unworthy persecution.  Under
all of it & over it all the Masters hand; be sure that all
is well for thee. x x x x.

The light mentioned in Spain is of seven sides & a purple
& yellow light.  On each of the seven sides is a star.  This
represents the Lodge of Spain.  Connect yourself with it as
you will be directed. x x x

I will not permit you to resign nor will I permit you to submit
to further investigation.  Form your plans for the American
work.  Keep all your lines perfect with sustaining points &
leave the rest to us.  This is to your questions of last night.
x x x x x

I will not touch on minor points.  They will take care of
themselves.  Master is not after minor points.  Let us turn
our eyes to the American future of Theosophy. x x x x
