[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]





November(?), 1898.




     Very glad to learn that you and the Kumar are enjoying good health.  As for me, my heart has become very weak.  Change, I do not think, will do me any good, as for the last 14 years I do not remember to have stopped at one place for 3 months at a stretch.  On the other hand if by some chance I can live for months in one Place, I hope it will do me good.  


I do not mind this.  However, I feel that my work in this life is done.  Through good and evil, pain and pleasure, my life-boat has been dragged on.  The one great lesson I was taught is that life is misery, nothing but misery.  


Mother knows what is best.  Each one of us is in the hands of Karma; it works itself out—and no nay.  There is only one element in life Which is worth having at any cost, and it is love.  Love immense and infinite, broad as the sky and deep as the ocean—this is the one great gain in life.  


Blessed is he who gets it.


Ever yours in the Lord,









[Letter to Maharaja of Khetri]



15th December, 1898.




     Your very kind letter received with the order of 500 on Mr. Dulichand.  I am a little better now.  Don't know whether this improvement will continue or not.


     Are you to be in Calcutta this winter, as I hear?  Many Rajas are coming to pay their respects to the new Viceroy.  The Maharaja of Sikar is here, I learn from the papers already.


     Ever praying for you and yours,


Yours in the Lord,
