". . . 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 ---
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."
