My Dear Karandhara,
Please accept my blessings. Enclosed please find one letter addressed to the twelve devotees recommended by you and now duly initiated by me. Their beads should arrive very soon by air parcel post.
One thing is that in some cases I wasn't certain whether the names given were masculine or feminine. So from now on in all such cases the letter M or F, indicating Male or Female, must follow the name in brackets. Still there is some question, so if the gender is incorrect in the following names, you may make the necessary corrections:
I. (Pat Hogan) = Paratrikananda if male, or Paratrikanandi if female. II. (Irene Kent) = Iksvakuraja if male or Iksvakurani if female.
I think of the twelve, Irene, Linda, Stephanie and Vickie were the only girls. Then the enclosed letter is all correct. Otherwise you can let me know.
Hoping this will meet you in good health.
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
