[From Incidents in the Life of Madame Blavatsky, by A. P. Sinnett.
London: George Redway, 1886, p. 100]
[This footnote was appended by H. P. B. to that portion of her sister’s narrative, used by A. P. Sinnett in his text, that described the manner in which the genealogy of H. P. B.’s family was reconstructed with the help of occult methods Sinnett says: “This lasted for months. Never during that time were Mme. Blavatsky’s invisible helper or helpers found mistaken in any single instance.” To this H. P. B. remarks:]
Indeed not; for it was neither a “spirit” nor “spirits” but living men who can draw before their eyes the picture of any book or manuscript wherever existing, and in case of need even that of any long forgotten and unrecorded event, who helped “Mme. Blavatsky.” The astral light is the store-house and the record book of all things, and deeds have no secrets for such men. And the proof of it may be found in the production of Isis Unveiled.
