To Sister Christine

The Math, Belur, Dist. Howrah,

15th June 1902.

Dear Christine,

Just now received your note. I am quite easy in my mind so long [as] you live with Mrs. [Charlotte] Sevier at Mayavati. You know, anxiety is one thing I must avoid to recover. I will be very anxious if you are in Calcutta, at Baghbazar. I am slowly recovering. Stay with Mrs. Sevier as long as you can. Don't come down with Margot [Sister Nivedita].

With love,




To Sister Christine

The Math, Belur, Dist. Howrah,

21st June 1902.

My dear Christine,

You have not the least cause to be anxious. I am getting on anyhow and am quite strong. As to diet, I find I have to restrict myself and not follow the prescription of my doctor to eat anything I like. The pills continue, however. Will you ask the boys if they can get "Amalaki" [Emblic myrobalan] fruits in the place now? We cannot get them in the plains now. They are rather sour and puckery eaten raw; but make marmalade of whole [ones]--delicious. Then they are the best things for fermentation I ever get.

No anxiety on the score of Marie Louise's 177 arrival in Calcutta. She has not yet made any noise.

Things go on the same. I am trying to go to Monghyr--a place near Calcutta and said to be very salubrious.

We will think of your coming to Baghbazar after Nivedita has fairly started; till then keep quiet and lay on food.

With all love to yourself, the boys and Mother [Mrs. Charlotte Sevier],


PS--I am laying on adipose tissues fast--especially about the abdominal regions: "It is fearful to see!"
