Dear Madame Jelihovsky,
I am very sorry you had an imperfect copy of Nightmare Tales; I send a perfect one. Some were badly bound.
The Polar Lands was in her writing, among her papers she gave me, so I had no idea it was not hers. I will mention the mistake in next Lucifer, & I would be very much obliged to you indeed if you will let me print the story under your name in Lucifer. I will tell Mrs. Johnston what you say.
The place to inquire about French Theosophical literature is the Siège français, 14 rue Chaptal. The French “translation” of "Why I became a Theosophist" is very badly done, is not really a translation, as so many alterations are made. But you will get all information at rue Chaptal.
With kind regards
