Dear Ramesvar Prabhu:
Please accept my humble obeisances. I have sent you several notes of things to send here, and as Jayatirtha is going there personally, I will list everything again. These things can be sent with Nitai’s wife. First a very small manual typewriter. They have these very small models that can be easily carried. It should be concealed in her luggage and not declared at Indian customs. It will remain here in India permanently where there is irregular electrical supply. If she has to declare it, let her say it is only Dollars 25, and we will pay the duties when necessary to keep it here. Also stationary supplies: half dozen Steno pads, Typing correction magic fluid and magic papers; paper glue, a book that teaches speed-writing (different from shorthand.); a book that teaches touch typing; a scale that weighs baggage (like fish scale that you hook onto the luggage handle and lift the whole thing); 200 green letterheads and envelopes (take precaution that envelopes don’t stick closed in Bombay humidity); ghee for Prabhupada.
For my personal I require shaving cream and injector blades; half dozen toothbrushes hard bristle; also personal copies of new books like Bhagwatam 3:2 and 4:1 (additional copies of Songbook can be distributed to temple presidents and sannyasis here); silk dhoti and kurta Jayatirtha had dyed for me.
Also send me an up to date list of all temple addresses with zip code numbers. Make it a point to send such a list every month. Also send xerox copies of documents such as “Direction of Management”, and the “BBT”.
Also send dried fruits for Sruta Kirtis diet.
I hope this meets you well. Thanks a lot.
N.B. Also include a box of 500 typing copy papers with attached disposable carbon papers. Also include one box of printed office memo forms with snap out one time carbons. It is a printed form for writing memos conveniently.
