To Lala Badri Sah
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,
Swami Vivekananda visited Almora in the summer of 1897, he was the
guest of Lala Badri Sah for about two and a half months. 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".
