 I can't be sure, but I think you might have put two
different statements together: "The Chiefs want a Brotherhood of
Humanity, a real universal fraternity started; an institution
which would make itself known throughout the world and arrest the
attention of the highest minds." (ML 6) and "But a "hot bed of
Magick" we never dreamt of. Such an organization as mapped out
by Mr. Sinnett and yourself is unthinkable among Europeans; and
it has become next to impossible even to India..." (ML 28)
