Odessa, Russia 

[The letter from Koot Hoomi referred to in the following passage is 
preserved in the archives of the Theosophical Society, Adyar, Madras, 
India. A facsimile of it with background information is in C. 
Jinarajadasa's Letters from the Masters of the Wisdom, Second Series, 

I [will] narrate what happened to me in connection with a certain 
note, received by me phenomenally when my niece was at the other side 
of the world, and not a soul knew where she was?which grieved us 
greatly. All our researches had ended in nothing. We were ready to 
believe her dead, when ? I think it was about the year 1870 ? I 
received a letter from him whom I believe you call Kouth-humi [Koot 
Hoomi] ? which was brought to me in the most incomprehensible and 
mysterious manner, by a messenger of Asiatic appearance, who then 
disappeared before my very eyes. This letter begged me not to fear 
anything, and announced that she was in safety.

My niece spoke of [these Mahatmas] to me, and at great length, years 
ago. She wrote me that she had again met and renewed her relations 
with several of them, even before she wrote her Isis [Unveiled]. If I 
who have ever been, and hope ever to continue, to be a fervent 
Christian, believe in the existence of these men?although I may 
refuse to credit all the miracles they attribute to them?why should 
not others believe in them? For the existence of at least one of 
them, I can certify. Who, then, could have written me this letter to 
reassure me at the moment when I had the greatest need for such 
comfort, unless it had been one of those adepts mentioned? It is true 
that the handwriting is not known to me; but the manner in which it 
was delivered to me was phenomenal, that none other than an adept in 
occult science could have effected it. It promised me the return of 
my niece?and the promise was duly fulfilled.
