The Name FRAUD

Dear Friends,

Beatrice Hastings correctly named Solovyoff's actions as fraud, so that the reader can know what kind of studd this is. 

Then Daniel quoted: Quoted from Beatrice Hastings' SOLOVYOFF'S FRAUD, 1988, pp. 27–29.

A true researcher do not publish  fraudulent texts as if they were authentic. 
I hope in the future Daniel will stop doing this -- and will follow Beatrice's example.  

Regards,  Carlos.

> ------------------------------------------------------
> Having received a letter from my countrywoman, Madame Helena

> I left Paris on the 24th of Augusst. Next morning, at the Grand 
> Hotel in Brussels, where I was staying, I met Mlle. [Justine de 
> Glinka] (daughter of [a] Russian ambassador and maid of honour to 
> the Empress of Russia). Hearing that I was going to Elberfeld to see 
> Mme. Blavatsky, whom she knew and for whom she had much respect, she 
> decided to come with me. We spent the day together expecting to 
> leave in the morning by the nine o'clock train.
> At eight o'clock, being quite ready to depart, I go to Miss [de 
> Glinka's] room and find her in a great state of perplexity. All her 
> keys, which she always kept about her person in a little bag and 
> that she had in this bag on going to bed, had disappeared during the 
> night, although the door was locked. Thus, as all her baggage was 
> locked, she could not put away the things she had just been using

> it was opened, all the keys were found in the bottom of the trunk, 
> including the key of this trunk itself, attached as usual to the 
> rest. Having all the morning to spare, we agreed to take a walk, but 
> suddenly I was overcome by weakness and felt an irresistible desire 
> to sleep. I begged Miss [de Glinka] to excuse me and went to my 
> room, and threw myself on the bed. But I could not sleep and lay 
> with my eyes shut, but awake, when suddenly I saw before my closed 
> eyes a series of views of unknown places that my memory took in to 
> the finest detail. When this vision ceased, I felt no more weakness 
> and went to Miss [de Glinka], to whom I related all that had 
> happened to me and described to her in detail the views I had seen.
> We left by the one o'clock train and lo! after about half an hour's 
> journey, Miss [de Glinka], who was looking out of the window, said 
> to me, "Look, here is one of your landscapes!" I recognized it at 
> once, and all that day until evening, I saw, with open eyes, all 
> that I had seen in the morning with closed eyes. I was pleased that 
> I had described to Miss [de Glinka] all my vision in detail. The 
> route between Brussels and Elberfeld is completely unknown to me, 
> for it was the first time in my life that I had visited Belgium and 
> this part of Germany.
> On arriving at Elberfeld in the evening, we took rooms in a hotel 
> and then hurried off to see Madame Blavatsky at Mr. Gebhard's house. 
> The same evening, the members of the Theosophical Society who were 
> there with Mme. Blavatsky showed us two superb oil paintings of the 
> Mahatmas [Morya] and Koot Hoomi [painted by Mr. Schmiechen]. The 
> portrait of M. especially produced on us an extraordinary 
> impression, and it is not surprising that on the way back to the 
> hotel, we talked on about him and had him before our eyes. Miss [de 
> Glinka] may be left to relate her own experience during that night. 
> [Miss de Glinka's experience was similar to Solovyov's. —Editor.]
> But this is what happened to me:
> Tired by the journey, I lay peacefully sleeping when suddenly I was

> preparation, and that the last lesson had been given me that morning 
> when I saw, with closed eyes, the landscapes that I was to see in 
> reality the same day. Then he said that I possess great magnetic 
> power, now being developed. I asked him what I ought to do with this 
> force. But without answering, he vanished.
> I was alone, the door of my room locked. I thought I had had a 
> hallucination and even told myself with fright that I was beginning

> to me, "Be sure that I am no hallucination and that your reason is 
> not quitting you. Blavatsky will prove to you tomorrow before 
> everyone that my visit is real." Then he disappeared. I saw by my 
> watch that it was three o'clock. I put out the candle and 
> immediately went into a deep sleep.
> Next morning, on going with Miss [de Glinka] to Madame Blavatsky, 
> the first thing she said to us with an enigmatical smile was "Well! 
> How have you passed the night?" "Very well," I replied and I 
> added, "Haven't you anything to tell me?" "No," she replied, "I only 
> know that the Master was with you with one of his pupils."
> That same evening, Mr. Olcott found in his pocket a little note, 
> that all the Theosophists said was in the handwriting of M: 
> "Certainly I was there, but who can open the eyes of him who will 
> not see."
> This was the reply to my doubts, because all the day I had been

> I should say that on my return to Paris, where I am now, my 
> hallucinations and the strange happenings that surrounded me, have
