I received your kind letter. Miss Slade arrived a little later. What
a treasure you have sent me. I shall try to be worthy of such a great
confidence. I shall do everything to help Miss Slade to become a little
bridge between West and East. I am too imperfect to have a disciple.
She will be my companion in my research (for truth) and as I am older
and consequently more advanced in spiritual experience, I propose
to share with you the honour of your paternity. Miss Slade shows a
marvellous capacity for adaptation and we are already quite at ease
with her. I leave Miss Slade to tell you the rest by asking her to
speak to you of a French sister who has arrived at the Ashram just
a few days before her.
