THE MATH, BELUR
18th June 1901
DEAR FRIEND —
Allow me to call you a friend. We must have been such in some past birth. Your cheque for 300 rupees duly reached and many thanks for the same.
I am just thinking of going to Japan, but with one thing or another and my precarious health, I cannot expedite matters as I wish.
Japan to me is a dream — so beautiful that it haunts one all his life.
With all love and blessings,
Kakudzo [Kakuzo] Okakura Esq.
