[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




 




C/O RISIBAR MOOKERJEE,




CHIEF JUDGE,




KASHMIR,




 




17th September, 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     I have been very ill here for two weeks.  Now getting better.  I am in want of funds.  Though the American friends are doing everything they can to help me, I feel shame to beg from them all the time, especially as illness makes one incur contingent expenses.  




 




I have no shame to beg of one person in the world and that is yourself.  Whether you give or refuse, it is the same to me.  If possible send some money kindly.  How are you? I am going down by the middle of October.




 




     Very glad to learn from Jagamohan the complete recovery of the Kumar(Prince) Saheb.  Things are going on well with me; hoping it is the same with you.




 




Ever yours in the Lord,




 




VIVEKANANDA.

[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




 




LAHORE,




 




16th October 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     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 Pujâ of Shri Durga 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,




 




VIVEKANANDA.




 




 




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