SUBJECT: Djual K. appears to HPB on board ship & precipitates K.H. 
Letter for A.P. Sinnett

Below are excerpts from a letter to A.P. Sinnett from H.P. Blavatsky.

[Steamship] Clan Drummond: Algiers. 

Sunday [November] 8th. [1884] 

My dear Mr. Sinnett, 

. . . Last night as we were hopelessly tossed about and pitched in 
our Clan wash-tub Djual K. put in an appearance and asked in his 
Master's name if I would send you a chit. I said I would. He then 
asked me to prepare some paper -- which I had not. He then said any 
would do. I then proceeded to ask some from a passenger. . . . Lo! I 
wish those passengers, who quarrel with us every day about the 
possibility of phenomena could see what was taking place in my cabin 
on the foot of my berth! How D.K.'s hand, as real as life, was 
impressing the letter at his Master's dictation which came out in 
relief between the wall and my legs. He told me to read the letter 
but I am no wiser for it. 

. . . Had not Master [K.H.] brought about the explanation [in the 
letter precipitated] I would have gone away leaving a nice memory of 
myself in Mrs. Sinnett's and your hearts. . . . The steamer is a 
rolling wash-tub and the steward an infamy. We are all starving, and 
live upon our own tea and biscuits. Do write a word to Port Said, 
poste restante. We shall remain in Egypt perhaps a fortnight. . . . 
Can't write for the rolling. Love to all. 

Yours ever truly 

H. P. Blavatsky.
