5th December 1910

We reached shirdi about 4p.m. We put in the Wada built for the convenience of people by R.B.Sathe. Madhavrao Deshpande was very obliging and helped us and treated us like guests. There are in the Wada Tatyasahib Nulkar with his family,Bapusahib Jog, and Bahasahib Sahasrabuddhe. We all went to see the Sayin Maharaj soon after our arrival. He was in the Musjid. After salutation I and my son offered the fruits brought by us and gave some money at his request. The Sayin Saheb then said that he has not been well for the last two years and more, that he used to eat only barley cake and take a little water. He showed his foot and pointed to a small sore, said it was the stringworm, that it wasextracted but string snapped and then it reaopeared and so on. He said he heard that it would not be well with him till he went to his native town. He said he kept it in view but that was all, he cared more for his people than even for his own life. It could not be helped. Then he told us to withdras which we did. Towards evening he passed by the Wada, and we went and saluted him. I and Madhavrao Deshpande were together. After we saluted, he said "Go to the Wada and sit quiet". So I and Madhavrao returned. We all Sat Talking. They have many Miracles to relate.
