To Pramadadas Mitra
(Original in Bengali)
28th November, 1888.
I have received the book of Pânini which you so kindly sent me. Please accept my gratitude for the same.
I had an attack of fever again â hence I could not reply to you immediately. Please excuse. I am ailing much. I am praying to the Divine Mother to keep you happy physically and mentally.
(Translated from Bengali)
Victory to God!
4th Feb., 1889.
For some reason I had been feeling today agitated and cramped in my mind, when your letter of invitation to the heavenly city of Varanasi reached me. I accept it as the call of Vishveshvara. (The Lord of the Universe, or Shiva, as installed in the leading temple of Varanasi or Kashi.) I am going now on a pilgrimage to the place of my Master's nativity, and after a sojourn of a few days there, I shall present myself to you. He must be made of stone whose mind does not melt at the sigh of Kashi and its Lord! I feel now much improved in health. My regards to Jnanananda. I am coming as soon as I can. It all depends ultimately on Vishveshvara's will . . . . More when we meet.

Thanks a hundred thousand times, Master! You have hit Ramakrishna in the right pointÂ
Few, alas, few understand him
