To Shri Haripada Mitra

(Original in Bengali)


16th October, 1898.


In Kashmir my health has completely broken down, and I have not witnessed the Durga-Puja for the last nine years; so I am starting for Calcutta.

I have for the present given up the plan of going to America. I think I shall have plenty of time to go to Karachi during the winter.

My brother-disciple Saradananda will send Rs. 50/- from Lahore to Karachi. Don't yield to sorrow — everything is in God's hands. Certainly I won't go anywhere this year without meeting all of you. 

My blessings to all.

Yours affectionately,




To Maharaja of Khetri

The letter that followed my wire gave the desired information; therefore I did not wire back about my health in reply to yours.

This year I suffered much in Kashmir and am now recovered and going to Calcutta direct today. For the last ten years or so I have not seen the Puja of Shri Durgâ in Bengal which is the great affair there. I hope this year to be present.

The Western friends will come to see Jaipur in a week or two. If Jagamohan be there, kindly instruct him to pay some attention to them and show them over the city and the old arts

I leave instructions with my brother Saradananda to write to Munshiji before they start for Jaipur

How are you and the Prince? Ever as usual praying for your welfare,

I remain yours affectionately,


PS. My future address is Math, Belur, Howrah Dist. Bengal.
