[The Theosophist, Vol. III, NO. 7, Supplement to April, 1882, p. 4]
To M. ADELBERTH DE BOURBON, F.T.S.,
Secretary of the “Post Nubila Lux Theos. Soc’y.”
DEAR SIR AND BROTHER,
It is with deep regret and a profound and respectful sympathy for the widow and children of our lamented Brother, Mr. Thomas von Stolk, that every member of our Society will hear of the sad news from The Hague. Meanwhile, the Parent Body and the Theosophical Society of Bombay beg to send, through me, the expression of their heartfelt regrets and warm sympathies for their respected Sister and Fellow-Member, Mrs. von Stolk. May she and her half-orphaned children gather strength and consolation in the conviction
that the memory of the good husband and kind father they have lost, will never die in the grateful hearts of those who knew him.
Pray to convey to Mrs. von Stolk on behalf of our President, Colonel H. S. Olcott, and myself, the assurance of our personal condolence and regrets. To many of us, the late Mr. von Stolk is not dead, but only gone to a better and brighter existence.
Believe me, yours fraternally, and in profound sympathy,
H. P. BLAVATSKY,
Corresponding Sec’y, Parent Theos. Society.
Bombay, March 15,1882.
