[Letter to Swami Brahmananda]




[Translated from Bengali]




 




GOPAL LAL VILLA,




BENARES(VARANASI) CANTONMENT,




 




21st February, 1902.




 




MY DEAR RAKHAL,




 




     I received a letter from you just now.  If mother and grandmother desire to come, send them over.  It is better to get away from Calcutta now when the season of plague is on. There is wide-spread plague in Allahabad; I do not know if it will spread to Varanasi this time.... 




 




Tell Mrs. Bull from me that a tour to Ellora and other places involves a difficult journey, and it is now very hot.  Her body is so tired that it is not proper to go on a tour at present.  It is several days since I received a letter from "Uncle".  




 




The last news was that he had gone to Ajanta.  Mahant also has not replied, perhaps he will do so with the reply to Raja Pyari Mohan's letter. ...




 




     Write me in detail about the matter of the Nepal Minister.  Give my special love and blessings to Mrs. Bull, Miss MacLeod, and all others.  My love and greetings to you, Baburam,^ and all others.  Has Gopal Dada^ got the letter?  Kindly look after the goat a bit.




 




Yours affectionately,




 




VIVEKANANDA.




 




     PS.  All the boys here send you their respectful salutations.




 




^Baburam - Swami Premananda.




 




^Gopal Dada - Swami Advsitananda.

[Letter to Swami Brahmananda]




[Translated from Bengali]




 




GOPAL LAL VILLA,




BENARES(VARANASI) CANTONMENT,




 




24th February, 1902.




 




 




     This morning I got a small American parcel sent by you. I have received no letter, neither the registered one you refer to nor any other.  




 




Whether the Nepalese gentleman came and what happened—I have not been able to know anything at all about it.  To write a simple letter so much trouble and so much delay!  




 




...Now I shall be relieved if I get the accounts. That also I get who knows after how many months! ...




 




Yours affectionately,




 




VIVEKANANDA.
