If there were time I could give you a description of a Paisi wedding to which I was invited, or could write of many other details crowded into the past eight days, with interviews, visits, appointments, receptions, inspection of educational institutions, and the like, but I have already been writing at too great length. There may be space, however, to add that I had an interesting day at the Karli caves with Dr. J. E. Abbott-one of our Oriental members as you will recall. Through the kindness of a Brahman acquaintance there was an opportunity to get into one of the smaller Indian temples, and I am invited to attend a Brahman wedding if I can stay till next Wednesday. The Burning Ghats, now busy with plague victims, have been seen; and the Towers of Silence will be visited to-morrow. Bat enough! This communication will be too long. I have occasion to thank you for your good letters of introduction, which I shall use. Please give to President Gilman, and to Vol. xxii.] Notes from Indica.
