My dear Mme. Jelihovsky,

Thank you so very much for your photo & the kind words on it.

And thank you also for the book & papers. I wish I could read Russian. If the Psychical Research Society does not issue it, I must see about getting it translated.

I went down to the P.R.S’s last meeting when they attacked H.P.B with this stuff of Solovioff's, & claimed the right to speak in her defence. They only allowed me 7 minutes! But I made them very uncomfortable by some things I said.

The Countess is away in Sweden, working for Theosophy as usual. Her son is back from the East & is with her.

With my hearty greetings to you & congratulations on your good work,

cordially yours

Annie Besant
