Dr. A. Keightley
(for Councillors etc.)
Enclosed is an exact transcript of what
HPB said to me Jany 3, prematurely
ended by a visitor - as usual & as
results from European continual nagging at me.
It is word for word. More will be said later.
You can let all worthy & devoted loyalists
read this - It may be read in a proper group.
Copies not to be made. This is to be kept
with Council papers.

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
