To Mr. E.T. Sturdy





228 WEST 39TH STREET,


NEW YORK,





8th December, 1895.





DEAR FRIEND,





After ten days of a most tedious and rough voyage I safely arrived in New York. My friends had already engaged some rooms at the above where I am living now and intend to hold classes ere long





In the meanwhile the Theosophists have been alarmed very much and are trying their best to hurt me; but they and their followers are of no consequence whatever.





I went to see Mrs. Leggett and other friends, and they are as kind and enthusiastic as ever.





Did you hear anything from India about the coming Sannyasin?





I will write later fuller particulars of the work here.





Kindly convey my best love to Miss Müller and to Mrs. Sturdy and all the other friends and kiss baby for me.  





Yours ever in the Sat,





VIVEKANANDA

To Miss Josephine MacLeod





228 WEST 39TH STREET,


NEW YORK,





8th December, 1895.





DEAR JOE JOE, 





After 10 days of the most disastrous voyage I ever had I arrived in New York. I was so so sick for days together.





After the clean and beautiful cities of Europe, New York appears very dirty and miserable. I am going to begin work next Monday. Your bundles have been safely delivered to the heavenly pair, as Alberta calls them. They are as usual very kind. Saw Mrs. and Mr. Salomon and other friends





By chance met Mrs. Peak at Mrs. Guernsey's but yet have no news of Mrs. Rothinburger. Going with the birds of paradise to Ridgely this Christmas. Wish ever so much you were there.





Had you a nice visit with Lady Isabelle? Kindly give my love to all our friends and know oceans yourself.





Excuse this short letter. I shall write bigger ones by the next.





Ever yours in the Lord,





VIVEKANANDA
