Chapter Summary

The British authorities waived, in March 1931, the three-month limit originally fixed for Roerichs' stay in India, having found nothing blameworthy in their conduct or doings, though they continued subsequently to keep the family under their "unobtrusive watch". Yet Nikolai Roerich felt safe and was optimistic as ever. Back in Naggar, he resumed his artistic work. Their visit to the United States (U.S.) lasted for five weeks, the time needed to mount their newly projected botanical expedition to Manchuria and Inner Mongolia. Manchuria attracted Roerich, however, not only because of its unique flora. The botanical expedition served an excellent screen for their activities under the Kansas Project, which was their major task, after all, assigned to them by the Master. Some light on these was shed by the published fragments of Nikolai Roerich's expedition diary.
