My Dear Kirtanananda,

Please accept my blessings. I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated September 25th, 1969. I am writing today to Subaldas why he did not receive you nicely, and I am very sorry for this incident. This noncooperative spirit between Godbrothers is not very encouraging to me. After all, I am old man, and I wish to retire very soon. So you have to work cooperatively. I do not know why this incident has taken place. But don’t be sorry. I am making proper enquiry and shall do the needful.

In the meantime, if you are working on the college campus, it is very nice. But I understand from Hayagriva’s letter that without your presence in New Vrindaban he feels deserted. I think you should both make your headquarters in New Vrindaban. Hayagriva has now a car, so conveniently you can go to college campuses and arrange for meetings.

So far as book selling is concerned, I do not know why Brahmananda has asked you strictly cash payment. Perhaps he has got some bitter experience with other centers. Therefore, he is more strict. Anyway, if he is strict, you can take books and magazines from him, as many as you like, and let me know the amount of the bill after deducting lump sum commission. I shall pay immediately for it by cash, and you can return me the money conveniently after sale. Our books and magazines must be sold with greatest endeavor, so please try to do this. The leaflet you have composed is very nice, and I am returning it herewith with some addition I have made.

I hope this will meet you in good health.

Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
