". . . here the actual reference from Count Witt's Diary about 
Blavatsky's inkschop ans special writigsckils. . . . "

Actually Brian should have written Count Witte's AUTOBIOGRAPHY --- 
not diary.

You can find Count Witte's remarks about HPB reprinted at BLAVATSKY 

There are many inaccuracies in Witte's account. For example, read 
the following words from Witte:

"Mme. Blavatski entered Cairo in a wet skirt and without a penny to 
her name. How she extricated herself from that situation, I do not 
know, but she was next discovered in England, where she founded a 
Theosophic Society. To strengthen the foundations of the new cult, 
she travelled to India, where she studied the occult science of the 
Hindus. Upon her return from India she became the centre of a large 
group of devotees of the theosophic doctrine and settled in Paris as 
the acknowledged head of the theosophists. Shortly afterwards she 
fell ill and died." 

There are at least 3 errors in this extract.
