July 1880
On ship back to Bombay from Ceylon

One evening on the steamer on our way back to Bombay [in July 1880], 
we finished our dinner [and] I went in [my cabin] and put on [my] 
coat. Without thinking I put my hands into my pockets as I usually do 
and lo! in the right-hand one I felt some paper. I took it out, and 
to my surprise I found a letter addressed to Mme. Blavatsky. I took 
it nearer to the light. The cover was open and on it were written in 
red the words: "For Damodar to read." I then read the letter. 
Thinking all the time of this matter, I lay down in my bed. Absorbed 
in deep thought, I was startled on the sound of footsteps in the 
cabin which I had locked from inside. I looked behind and there was 
[Mahatma Morya] again and two others! What a pleasant evening that 
was! Speaking of various things in regard to knowledge and philosophy 
for about half an hour!
