16th October, 1898.
YOUR HIGHNESS, (Maharaja of Khetri.)
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 Puja of Shri Durgâ 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,
PS. My future address is Math, Belur, Howrah Dist. Bengal.
