To Mrs. Ole Bull





C/O E. T. STURDY, ESQ., 


HIGH VIEW, CAVERSHAM, READING, ENGLAND, 





17th Sept., 1895.





DEAR MRS. BULL,








Mr. Sturdy and I want to get hold of a few of the best, say, strong and intelligent men in England to form a society, and therefore we must proceed slowly. We must take care not to be run over with "fads" from the first. This you will know has been my policy in America too. 





Mr. Sturdy has been in India living with our Sannyasins in their manner for some time. He is an exceedingly energetic man, educated and well versed in Sanskrit. . . . So far so good. . . . Purity, perseverance, and energy--these three I want, and if I get only half a dozen here, my work will go on. 





I have a great chance of such a few.

To Mrs. Ole Bull





Reading, England





24th Sept., '95





Dear Mrs. Bull,





I have not done any visible work as yet except helping Mr. Sturdy in studying Sanskrit. . . . Mr. Sturdy wants me to bring over a monk from India from amongst my brethren to help him when I am away in America. I have written to India for one. 





. . . So far it is all right. I am waiting for the next wave. "Avoid not and seek not--wait for what the Lord sends", is my motto. 





. . . I am a slow writer, but the heart is full of gratitude.





Yours with best wishes,





Vivekananda
