[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.

[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




 




MATH, BELUR,




HOWRAH DIST.,




BENGAL,




 




26th October, 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     I am very very anxious about your health.  I had a great desire to look in on my way down, but my health failed completely, and I had to run down in all haste.  There is some disturbance with my heart, I am afraid.




 




     However I am very anxious to know about your health.  If you like I will come over to Khetri to see you.  I am praying day and night for your welfare. Do not lose heart if anything befalls, the "Mother" is your protection.  Write me all about yourself. 




 




...How is the Kumar Saheb?




 




     With all love and everlasting blessings,




 




Ever yours in the Lord,




 




VIVEKANANDA.

1898




 




[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]




ALMORA,




 




9th June, 1898.




 




YOUR HIGHNESS,




 




     Very sorry to learn that you are not in perfect health. Sure you will be in a few days.




 




     I am starting for Kashmir on Saturday next.  I have your letter of introduction to the Resident, but better still if you kindly drop a line to the Resident, telling him that you have already given an introduction to me.




 




     Will you kindly ask Jagamohan to write to the Dewan of Kishangarh reminding him of his promise to supply me with copies of Nimbârka Bhâshya on the Vyasa-Sutras and other Bhâshyas(commentaries) through his Pandits.




 




     With all love and blessings,




 




Yours,




 




VIVEKANANDA.




 




PS.  Poor Goodwill is dead.  Jagamohan knows him well.  I want a couple of tiger skins, if I can, to be sent to the Math as present to two European friends.  These seem to be most gratifying presents to Westerners.

[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.
