To Sister Christine
30th October 1899.
My dear Christina,
Did you not get my last letter? I am very anxious to know how you are. Write a line to tell me you are in very good health.
I am afraid the previous one was misdirected, so I send this c/o Mrs. Funkey [Funke].
Do write soon. I am thinking of Battle Creek food.ÂÂ Baby insists on that. Do you think it will do me any good? Write soon.
Ever yours in the Lord,
PS--Where is this Battle Creek? Is it near Detroit? I am seriousl y thinking of giving it a trial. I am not bad, but unfit for any exertion, even for a walk. This sort of life is no good to live. I [will] try Battle Creek, and if that fails, get out quick.
Write me about Battle Creek.
To Sister Nivedita
1st Nov., 1899.
. . . It seems there is a gloom over your mind. Never mind, nothing is to last for ever. Anyhow life is not eternal. I am so, so thankful for it.
Suffering is the lot of the world's best and bravest â yet, for aeons yet â till things are righted; if possible, here â at least it is a discipline which breaks the dream. In my sane moments I rejoice for my sufferings.
Some one must suffer here; â I am glad it is I, amongst others of nature's sacrifices.
