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!
