27th May Swami Vivekananda Life

27 May:

To Sister Christine -The Math, Belur, Dist. Howrah, 

27th May 1902.

My dear Christine,
I am sorry I could not visit the mountains this time.
 
I am so happy to learn the mountains are doing you good. Eat a lot, sleep as much as you can, and get plump. Stuff yourself till you get plump or you burst.
 
If you feel you are becoming the least burdensome to Mrs. Sevier, write me immediately. 

It would be a sin to put further pressure on her--she does so much for me. However, she likes you very much and writes that you look be-au-ti-ful in saris.
 
I have just now two kids and three lambs added to the family. There was one more kid, but he got himself drowned in the yellow fish tank. How is Margot? Is she still there, or gone away with Mr. Okakura? How is she pulling on with the boys?
 
What do you do the whole day? How do you pass the day? Write me all details, and frequently; but do not expect long letters from me often.
 
Give my love to Mrs. Sevier, to Margot and the rest, and you may take a few spoonfuls, if you like.
