"KIRTANANANDA SWAMI prearranged with you to reach on the 24th instant but he arranged here with me that he would stop at London and I gave him one important introduction letter. Although he had in his mind not to stop at London and yet promised before me that he would go, for which I gave him extra $20.00. I CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY HE PLAYED WITH ME LIKE THIS. If he had no desire to go to London he would have plainly told me like that. IT HAS CERTAINLY GIVEN ME A GREAT SHOCK. He is one of my very faithful disciples and if he does like that how can I prosecute my programmes. I have received one post card from him from London Airport in which he writes that he is going directly to N.Y. I understand also from Umapati's letter that he has already reached New York although I have not heard anything from him from New York. It is all my misfortune."
