To Sister Christine





Vedanta Society,


102 East 58th Street,


New York,





13th June 1900.





Dear Christina,





There is no cause for any anxiety. As I wrote, I am healthier than ever; moreover, all the past fear of kidney troubles has passed away. "Worry" is the only disease I have, and I am conquering it fast.





I will be here a week or two, and then I come to Detroit. If things so happen that I cannot come, I will sure send for you. Anyway, I am not going to leave this country before seeing you. Sure, sure--I must see you first, and then go to Europe.





Things are looking cheerful once more, and good luck, like ill, also comes in bunches. So I am sure it will be smooth sailing every way now, for some time at least.





With love to Mrs. Funkey [Funke],





Ever yours in the Truth,





Vivekananda.

My dear Christina,


I am getting better every day, only this New York is a bad place for sleep. Again, I am working some, though not hard, to get the old friends together and put the thing in shape.





Now, you know, I will in a week or so finish this work and then be ready for a real quiet of a week or two or more.Detroit, alas! will be no better than New York. With so many old friends! How can you avoid friends whom you really love?





I will have perfect freedom at yours--sure--but how can I avoid seeing friends and the eternal visiting and paying visits and much talkee-talkee?





Do you know any other place within eight or ten hours (I want to avoid night rides) of riding from New York where I can be quiet and free from the people? (Lord bless them.)





I am dead tired seeing people just now. Just think of that and everything else; if, after all, you think Detroit is the best place for me, I am ready to come.





Yours truly,





Vivekananda.





PS--I am also thinking of a quiet place.





V.
