To Sister Nivedita





NEW YORK,





2nd July, 1900.





DEAR NIVEDITA,





. . . Mother knows, as I always say. Pray to Mother. It is hard work to be a leader one must crush all one's own self under the feet of the community. . . .





Yours etc.,





VIVEKANANDA





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








To Mrs. Alice (Shanti) Hansbrough





102 E. 58th Street


New York





3rd July 1900





My dear Mrs. Hansbrough--





This is to introduce Swami Turiyananda. The lady who gave the piece of land for Vedanta work belongs to Los Angeles. She has taken Turiyananda with her. He is a great spiritual teacher--but has no experience in platform work.





The best thing would be to help him to start a centre for quiet and rest and meditation in the land near San Jose.





With all love to the holy Trinity.





Ever yours in the Lord,





Vivekananda

To Sister Christine





[On July 3, 1900, before departing for Detroit with Swami Turiyananda and Miss Minnie Boock, Swami Vivekananda dispatched a telegram.]





[Postmarked: New York





July 3, 1900]





Started reach tomorrow Wednesday 2 p.m. Come station Wabash.





Swami Vivekananda

To Miss Mary Hale





102 E. 58TH STREET,


NEW YORK,





11th July, 1900.





MY DEAR DEVOTED SISTER,





I was glad to get your note as also to learn that you were going to Greenacre. Hope you will have much profit.





I have been much censured by everyone for cutting off my long hair. I am sorry. You forced me to do it.





I had been to Detroit and came back yesterday. Trying as soon as possible to go to France, thence to India.





Very little news here; the work is closed. I am taking regularly my meals and sleeping — that is all.





Ever faithful and loving brother,





VIVEKANANDA.





PS. Write to the girls to send my mails, if any, at Chicago.





V.
