1895




 




541 DEARBORN AVENUE,




CHICAGO,




 




3rd January, 1895.




 




DEAR MRS. BULL,




 




     I lectured at Brooklyn last Sunday, Mrs. Higgins gave a little reception the evening I arrived, and some of the prominent members of the Ethical Society including Dr. Jain [Janes] were there.  




 




Some of them thought that such Oriental religious subjects will not interest the Brooklyn, public.




 




     But the lecture, through the blessings of the Lord, proved a tremendous success.  




 




About 800 of the elite of Brooklyn were present, and the very gentlemen who thought it would not prove a success are trying for organising a series in Brooklyn.  




 




     The New York course for me is nearly ready, but I do not wish to fix the dates until Miss Thursby comes to New York.  




 




      As such Miss Phillips who is a friend of Miss Thursby's and who is arranging the New York course for me will act with Miss Thursby in case she wants to get up something in New York.




 




     I owe much to the Hale family and I thought to give them a little surprise by dropping in on New Year's day.  I am trying to get a new gown here. 




 




     The old gown is here, but it is so shrunken by constant washings that it is unfit to wear in public.  




 




     I am almost confident of finding the exact thing in Chicago.




 




     I hope your father is all right by this time.




 




     With my love to Miss Farmer, Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons, and the rest of the holy family,




 




I am ever yours,




 




Affectionately,




 




VIVEKANANDA.




 




PS.  I saw Miss Couring at Brooklyn.  She was as kind as ever. Give her my love if you write her soon.
