To Mrs.Hale


54 W. 33.


New York


[April 26]

Dear Mother

Perhaps you did not receive my letter asking you to send the Calcutta pamphlets about the Paramhansa Ramkrishna. Kindly send them to me at 54 W. 33. And also the pamphlets about the Calcutta meeting if you have any. Also the summer coat to the care of Miss  Phillips 19 W. 38.

As I do not see any probability of my going soon to Chicago-I am thinking of drawing all my money from the Chicago bank to New York. Will you kindly ascertain the exact total amount I have in Chicago? So that I may draw it out at once and deposit it in some New York bank.

Kindly do these and I will bother you no more. I have written to India long ago about the rugs. I do not know whether Dewanji [Shri Haridas Viharidas Desai, Dewan of Junagadh] is alive or dead. I have no information.

I am all right and will be more than a month yet in Newyork. After that I am going to the Thousand Islands wherever that place may be for a little summer quiet and rest. Mrs. Bagley has been down here to see me and attended several of my classes.

The classes are going on with a boom; almost every day I have one, and they are packed full. But no "money" except they maintain themselves. I charge no fees. Except as the members contribute to the rent & c voluntarily.It is mostly probable that I will go away this summer.

With my love to all Ever gratefully yours

The Ist of May 1895

Dear Mother

Many many thanks for sending the coat. Now I am well equipped for summer. I am so sorry the rugs could not come before I leave this country. They will come if Dewanji is alive.

I have been out of town a few days and am now come back all right healthy as ever.

Lord bless you ever & ever for your untiring kindness to me.


Ever Yours grateful son
