[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.

THE MATH,




 




21st April, 1902.




 




DEAR JOE,




 




     It seems the plan of going to Japan seems to have come to nought. Mrs. Bull is gone, you are going.  I am not sufficiently acquainted with the Japanese.




 




     Sadananda has accompanied the Japanese to Nepal along with Kanai.  Christine could not start earlier, as Margot could not go till the end of this month.




 




     I am getting on splendidly, they say, but yet very weak and no water to drink.  Anyhow the chemical analysis shows a great improvement. The swelling about the feet and the complaints have all disappeared.




 




     Give my infinite love to Lady Betty and Mr. Leggett, to Alberta and Holly—the baby has my blessings from before birth and will have for ever.




 




     How did you like Mayavati?  Write me a line about it.




 




With everlasting love,




 




VIVEKANANDA

THE MATH,




BELUR, HOWRAH,




 




15th May, 1902.




 




DEAR JOE,




 




     I send you the letter to Madame Calvé.




 




     .     .     .




 




     I am somewhat better, but of course far from what I expected.  A great idea of quiet has come upon me.  I am going to retire for good—no more work for me. If possible, I will revert to my old days of begging.




 




     All blessings attend you, Joe; you have been a good angel to me.




 




With everlasting love,




 




VIVEKANANDA,
