ONLY ONE IDEA WAS BURNING IN MY BRAIN - TO START THE MACHINE FOR ELEVATING THE INDIAN MASSES - THE LORD SENDS HELP TO ME


Dear, dear Mary, do not be afraid for me. . . The world is big, very big, and there must be some place for me even if the "Yankees" rage. Anyhow, I am quite satisfied with my work. I never planned anything. I have taken things as they came. Only one idea was burning in my brain — to start the machine for elevating the Indian masses — and that I have succeeded in doing to a certain extent. It would have made your heart glad to see how my boys are working in the midst of famine and disease and misery — nursing by the mat-bed of the cholera stricken Pariah and feeding the starving Chand├óla — and the Lord sends help to me and to them all.
