(Translated from Bengali)

To Tulsiram Ghosh


10 May 1890


A basket of roses will be sent to you in a few days at Chitpur. Do you please send them up immediately to Shashi [Swami Ramakrishnananda, at the Baranagore Math]. They would not be sent to the care of Balaram Basu, for there would be such nice delays and that would be death to the flowers. I think if sent to Chitpur, to your depot, it would reach you there at the very place; if not, write sharp. Baburam [Swami Premananda] is here, going up in a day or two to Allahabad. I too am going off from this place very soon. I go perhaps to Bareilly and up. What is Balaram Babu [Balaram Bose] doing?

My Pranāms etc. to you all.

Yours affectionately,


  1. ^The eldest of three brothers (Tulsiram, Baburam and Shantiram) and a sister (Krishnabhavini), married to Balaram Bose.
