1895





541 DEARBORN AVENUE,


CHICAGO,





3rd January, 1895.





DEAR MRS. BULL,





     I lectured at Brooklyn last Sunday, Mrs. Higgins gave a little reception the evening I arrived, and some of the prominent members of the Ethical Society including Dr. Jain [Janes] were there.  





Some of them thought that such Oriental religious subjects will not interest the Brooklyn, public.





     But the lecture, through the blessings of the Lord, proved a tremendous success.  About 800 of the elite of Brooklyn were present, and the very gentlemen who thought it would not prove a success are trying for organising a series in Brooklyn.  





The New York course for me is nearly ready, but I do not wish to fix the dates until Miss Thursby comes to New York.  





As such Miss Phillips who is a friend of Miss Thursby's and who is arranging the New York course for me will act with Miss Thursby in case she wants to get up something in New York.





     I owe much to the Hale family and I thought to give them a little surprise by dropping in on New Year's day.  I am trying to get a new gown here. 





The old gown is here, but it is so shrunken by constant washings that it is unfit to wear in public.  I am almost confident of finding the exact thing in Chicago.





     I hope your father is all right by this time.





     With my love to Miss Farmer, Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons, and the rest of the holy family, I am ever yours,





Affectionately,





VIVEKANANDA.





PS.  I saw Miss Couring at Brooklyn.  She was as kind as ever. Give her my love if you write her soon.
