From Epistles – First Series of Volume 5 of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda

(Translated from Bengali)

Gopal Lal Villa,
Benares (Varanasi) Cantonment,
24th February, 1902.

This morning I got a small American parcel sent by you.[1] I have received no letter, neither the registered one you refer to nor any other. Whether the Nepalese gentleman came and what happened — I have not been able to know anything at all about it. To write a simple letter so much trouble and so much delay! . . . Now I shall be relieved if I get the accounts. That also I get who knows after how many months! . . .

Yours affectionately,



  1. Swami Brahmananda
