183, Don't forget to present him (Maharaja of Khetri) an address of welcome

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Ramakrishnanda from Kashmir, on Sept. 30, 1897:

" ... PS. The Maharaja of Khetri is reaching Bombay on the 10th October. Don't forget to present him an address of welcome. ..."

*The ruler of Khetri was returning from London after attending the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria after paying tributes to the British Royalty.
*Why should Ramakrishnananda go from Madras to Mumbai for welcoming Khetri?
*Was it a monk's job?
*Who would pay RK's travelling expenses?
*Swami Vivekananda was not willing to help the Madras Math, by sparing surplus from his Reception lecture funds.
*Should Vivekananda's loyalty and subservience to the Khetri, extend to Ramakrishnananda also?

To continue, with more proof(s).
