To Madame Emma Calve





(Translated from the original in French)





6 PLACE DES ETATS UNIS, PARIS,


October, 1900.


MY DEAR MADEMOISELLE,


I have been very happy and content here. I am having the best of times after many years. I find life here with Mr. Bois very satisfactory — the books, the calm, and the absence of everything that usually troubles me.


But I don't know what kind of destiny is waiting for me now


My letter is funny, isn't it? But it is my first attempt.


Yours faithfully,





VIVEKANANDA.





===========================================
