To Mrs. G. W. Hale





The California Limited


Santa Fe Route





1 December 1899





My dear Mother,





Excuse this scrawl as the train is dancing.





I passed a good night and hope to have a good time all through. With all love for the sisters and Mr. [Clarence] Woolley 144 and Bud and Father Pope.





With love,





Vivekananda

To Sister Nivedita





THE CALIFORNIA LIMITED


SANTA FE ROUTE





December 2nd, 1899





MY DEAR MARGOT,





Two nights are passed — today the third will come. If it proves as pleasant and somnolent as the last two, I [shall] rejoice.





The scenery today I am passing through is much like the neighborhood of Delhi, the beginning of a big desert, bleak hills, scanty, thorny shrubs, very little water. The little streams are frozen, but during the middle of the day it is hot. Must be [illegible] I presume, in summer.





I send this to the care of Mrs. Adams, (Probably Mrs. Milward Adams.) as I don't know your address. The Chicago work will not give you much, I am sure, except in education in the methods here, which I am sure will work out soon.





With all love and blessings,





VIVEKANANDA

To Mrs. G. W. Hale





Los Angeles





6 December 1899





My dear Mother,





A few lines to say my safe arrival and am going to resume my usua l work of lecturing here.





I am much better than I was in Chicago and hope soon to become well again.





I cannot tell you how I enjoyed once more the little visit with my American Mother and Sisters.





Harriet has scored a triumph really. I am charmed with Mr. Woolley--only hope Mary will be equally fortunate. It gives me a new lease of life to see people happy. May they all be happy.





Ever with love, your son,





Vivekananda
