To Sister Nivedita
2nd July, 1900.
. . . 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. . . .
To Mrs. Alice (Shanti) Hansbrough
102 E. 58th Street
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,
To Sister Christine
[On July 3, 1900, before departing for Detroit with Swami Turiyananda and Miss Minnie Boock, Swami Vivekananda dispatched a telegram.]

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 â that is all.
Ever faithful and loving brother,
PS. Write to the girls to send my mails, if any, at Chicago.
