(Translated from Bengali)
12th Aug., 1888.
Leaving Ayodhya I have reached the holy Vrindaban, and am putting up at Kâlâ Bâbu’s Kunja. In the town the mind feels contracted. Places like Râdhâ-kunda, I have heard, are delightful; but they are at some distance from the town. I have a mind to proceed very shortly to Hardwar. In case you have any acquaintance there, you would be doing me a great favour if you would kindly write him an introduction for me. What about your visiting this place? Please reply early and oblige.
