To Lala Badri Sah
Thursday, [June 1897]
DEAR BADRI SAH,
I have been very sorry to learn that you are not well. It would please me very much if you would come down here for a few days, at any rate, with us; and I am sure it would do you good.
Yours with blessings,

During this period the Swami primarily stayed at Badri Sah's house in the bazaar and occasionally retreated to the garden-house of the Sahs at Devaldhar, about twenty miles north of Almora. In Hindi, the word Bagicha means "garden".
