The Coulomb Case
by Michael Gomes
vi + 73 pages ISBN 1-883279-10-0 (2005).
The one event that was to leave a permanent stain upon the
reputations of the Theosophical Society and of H.P. Blavatsky was
the publication of an exposé in The Madras Christian College
Magazine (September and October 1884) claiming fraud of the most
serious proportion allegedly perpetrated by Madame Blavatsky. This
publication brought into question the very existence of Blavatsky's
Masters and the letters that they supposedly wrote to such
individuals as A.P. Sinnett and A.O. Hume.
This book recounts the story of Emma Coulomb's charge that Blavatsky
faked the Mahatma letters; it also chronicles the investigation by
the S.P.R. of the Theosophical Society's and Blavatsky's claims of
communication with the Masters through its representative, Richard
Hodgson. Original documents are reproduced to shed more light on
