To Miss Josephine MacLeod or Mrs. Ole Bull


SESHNAG

CHANDANBARI, KASHMIR

[EN ROUTE FROM SRINAGAR TO AMARNATH]

[End of July 1898]


I send back the old Dandi (A simple palanquin.) as it is difficult to carry it through. I have got another like Margaret's. Please send it back to the Tahsildar of Vernag, Khand Chand, Esq., whom you already know. We are all right. Margot has discovered some new flowers and is happy. There is not much ice so the road is good.


Yours affectionately,


VIVEKANANDA


P.S. Keep this Dandi till I come and pay the coolies (2) 4 Rs., 2 annas each.
