FOLLOWING H. P. Blavatsky’s death in 1891, an editorial was published in the New York Daily Tribune (founded by Horace Greeley) noting:
“Madame Blavatsky held that the regeneration of mankind must be based upon the development of altruism.
“In this she was at one with the greatest thinkers, not alone of the present day, but of all time,” the Editorial acknowledged.
“And, it is becoming more and more apparent, at one with the strongest spiritual tendencies of the age.
“This alone would entitle her teachings to the candid and serious consideration of all who respect the influences that make for righteousness.”
