A. P. Sinnett
October 19, 1880
Simla, India

I saw K. H. in astral form on the night of 19th of
October. 1880ówaking up for a moment but immediately
afterwards being rendered unconscious again (in the
body) and conscious out of the body in the adjacent
dressing room, where I saw another of the Brothers
afterwards identified with one called Serapis by

Quoted from:
Sinnett, A.P. A Note. The Mahatma Letters, 3rd ed.,
p. 10.

[Some four years later, while William Judge was in
London and on a visit to Mr. Sinnett's home, the
following interesting conversation ensued. Mr. Judge

"I asked him [A.P. Sinnett] about his sight of K.H.
and he related thus: 'He was lying in his bed in India
one night [October 19, 1880], when suddenly awakening,
he found K.H. standing by his bed. He rose half up,
when K.H. put his hand on his head, causing him to
fall at once back on the pillow. He then, he says,
found himself out of the body, and in the next room,
talking to another adept whom he describes as an
English or European, with light hair, fair, and of
great beauty. This is the one [adept] Olcott
described to me in 1876 and called by name -------. 
Please erase that when read. S[innett] says he [the
European adept] is very high." Letters That Have
Helped Me, Theosophy Company edition, p. 196.]

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