Letter of Brahmabandhav Upadyaya to Fr. Louis Lacombe, S.J.
Calcutta, 27/1 Cornwallis Street
10th February 1898
Rev. and dear Father,
Since X,mas I have been thinking almost everyday of writing to you. Forgive my
I had been to Fr. Depelchin and he has told me that he will do his best to help
me. He has asked me to draw up a scheme of my mission work.
I can not express in words what I owe to you. The All-knowing Providence alone
knows how grateful I am toward you for clearing my way in Calcutta.
I deliver here two lectures they were very well attended and appreciated too.
Many come to see me………….
I may leave for Madras in the end of February and be present at Fr. Heraudeau’s
retreat. I will take Rewachand with me this time. I must be back in Sindth by
the middle of April. If my presence is required longer, for a few souls are
progressing at a fair rate towards our Holy Religion – then I think I shall be
obliged to deprive myself of the joy of seeing Fr. Billard and yourself and my
dear brethren there.
My friend Jogendra Ch. Mitra has taken leave and intends proceeding to
Jubbulpore, his father-in-law’s house, to get hold of, if possible, his son.
My loving respects to Fr. Billard and yourself.

Book - Reviews
History of Political thought of Modern Bengal by Satyendranath Pal. Though
the story of conservative radicalism is of Bengal yet it is tinged with and
unknown spirit of permanence. Problems posed by this philosophy are perennial in
breadth of vision and fullness of life. They are as urgent today as were
yesterday – the issues overflow the space-time continuum. Published by Firma KLM,

includes the fulfillment of a text of Daniel, in reference to the present (1842)
prophetic condition of Mahomedan nations, and the speedy dissolution of the
Early Travels in India 1583-1619 edited by William Foster 1921. This
interesting book contains the narratives of seven Englishmen who traveled in
Northern and Western India, during the reigns of the Emperors Akbar and Jahangir.
Sickness, robbery, threats of violence, were incidents that did not shake the
cheerfulness of these travellers and there is little reflection in their
narratives of their experiences.
