20th May Swami Vivekananda Life

20 May :
To Sister Nivedita from ALMORA,
 
20th May, 1898.
 

DEAR MARGOT,
Duty has no end, and the world is extremely selfish.
Be of good cheer. "Never a worker of good came to grief."

20 May 1898 :
 

Swami Vivekananda to Sri Rakhal Maharaj, 
Baburam went from here to Naini Tal on horseback against everybody's advice, and while returning, he also accompanied us on horseback. I was far behind as I was in a Dandi. When I reached the dak bungalow at night, I heard that Baburam had again fallen from the horse and had hurt one of his arms - though he had no fractures. Lest I should rebuke him, he stayed in a private lodging house. Because of his fall, Miss MacLeod gave him her Dandi and herself came on the horse. He did not meet me that night. Next day I was making arrangements for a Dandi for him, when I heard that he had already left on foot. Since then I have not heard of him. I have wired to one or two places, but no news. Perhaps he is putting up at some village. Very well! They are experts in increasing one's worries.
