R. Casava Pillay
September 1882
Bombay, India, and then later on a train near Allahabad, India 
[Theosophical Society, Report 1885, 89, 60?1] 

[On the night of September 13th] while retiring to bed in Colonel 
Olcott's room [at the Theosophical Headquarters, Bombay], with all 
doors closed, and in a good lamp light, I was startled to see, coming 
as it were out of the solid wall, the form of my most revered Guru 
Deva [Koot Hoomi] and I prostrated myself before him and he blessed 
me and, in good Telugu, desired me to come and see him beyond the 
Himalayas. A conversation of a private character then followed in the 
Telugu language. He disappeared in the same way as he had appeared.

[Several days later] while I was travelling by railway between the 
Allahabad and Mogal Sarai stations, a letter fell in the compartment 
of the railway carriage in which I was sitting. I was alone in the 
compartment and the carriage was in motion. I had wished that Mahatma 
K.H. should give me instructions regarding a certain matter about 
which I was then thinking, and when I opened the letter I found that 
my thoughts had been answered, and that the letter was in the 
handwriting of Mahatma K.H., whose writing I know so well.

[Later on this journey to Darjeeling when near Sikkim, Mr. Pillay 
reported that he saw the Mahatmas Koot Hoomi and Morya in their 
physical bodies. See my ESOTERIC WORLD OF MADAME BLAVATSKY for this 
account. ? Daniel]
