Testimony of Henry S. Olcott
October 25, 1888
Approaching Rome, Italy by train

In a letter to H.P. Blavatsky, Colonel H.S. Olcott

"[I had] the most unexpected and splendid visit from
M[orya] in the train. I felt so rejoiced. . . . He
was so kind, so loving and compassionate; despite all
my faults and shortcomings, he bears with me and holds
to me because of the useful work I have now and then
done, and of my fervent desire to do my duty. If he
has not told you already, he will; so I shall not flog
my tired brain to describe how he came, talked, looked
and went. Goodnight, Chum -- to you and to all . . .

In his handwritten diary for Oct. 25, 1888, Henry
Olcott penned the following: 

"At 9:30 [I] took train for Rome via Pistoia and Pisa.
In train all night. . . . [I] had a most encouraging
visit from M[orya] in the train."

their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
