On 4 th January 1887 HPB wrote letter to Col. Olcott after Subba Raw
(S.R.) gave opinion about Proem of SD.
HPB writes " ........Let S.R. do what he likes. I give him carte
blanche. I trust in his wisdom far more than in mine, for I may have
misunderstood in many a point both Master and the Old G. (other
Adept). They give me facts only and rarely dictate in succession. I
am no maker of books you know it........"
It not only tells wisdom of SR but also tells that she did
misunderstand things which went into her writing.
Later when she sent draft of Secrete Doctrine to Subba Raw for
correcting mistakes. He went through it and told her that if he was
to correct it he would have to write whole book again.
