In a letter dated May 16, 1885, William Q. Judge 
wrote to H.P. Blavatsky:

"Dear H.P.B.

"A pall of horrible misunderstanding seems to be
about us...."

"...I was foolish enough to give him [Hartmann]
confidentially, some analyses of your character
which I had better have kept to myself but I was
no worse than Olcott.  All of it was impersonal
for I did not suppose we were trying to injure
you.  I was certainly not."

"I do not care what you did or what you are
I am still the same friend as ever and shall so

"All I ever said was that it seemed as if you had
lied and played tricks now and then but I always
said that still I believed in you.  And I do.
Let us not beat around the bush.  You have lied
now & then & perhaps played some tricks, but I 
tell you I do not care a tinker's damn.  You are
to me as you were ever...."

"What I wrote about to Hartmann is a ridiculous
message about Holloway which if it emanated from
a Mahatma showed lack of knowledge to say the least.
But let us drop that...."

"As ever then, I remain faithful to you as well
as to the cause and begging your pardon for needless

William Q. Judge
