      The Mahatma Letters only began to appear after the migration to India
      in 1880, so that for five years the Society did not rest upon them in any
      architectonic sense. Its lowest literary stratum was in fact the "Luxor"
      Letters.

      A.P. Sinnett and his materially minded associates of the Indian services
      would never have been converted to a belief in pseudo-Himalayan
      marvels, nor would A. Besant have been drawn from atheism to
      credulity by reading for review The Secret Doctrine, had it not been
      based, as it professed to be, on the revelations of the writers of the
      Mahatma Letters. More than this: if we were to tell of the building up of
      the Society, stage by stage, and, especially, of the Esoteric Section-
      commonly known as the "E.S."-one can show that every member
      received into that select inner body was and is today still obliged to
      accept the authority of the Masters.
