To Alasinga Perumal


24th October, 1895

Dear Alasinga,

. . . I have already delivered my first address, and you may see how well it has been received by the notice in the Standard. The Standard is one of the most influential conservative papers. I am going to be in London for a month, then I go off to America and shall come back again next summer. So far you see the seed is well sown in England. . . .

Take courage and work on. Patience and steady work--this is the only way. Go on; remember--patience and purity and courage and steady work. . . . So long as you are pure, and true to your principles, you will never fail--Mother will never leave you, and all blessings will be yours. 

Yours with love,



To Miss Josephine MacLeod



31st October, 1895.



I shall be only too glad to come to lunch on Friday and see Mr. Coit at the Albemarle. 

Two American ladies, mother and daughter, living in London came in to the class last night — Mrs. and Miss Netter. They were very sympathetic of course. 

The class there at Mr. Chamier's is finished. I shall begin at my lodgings from Saturday night next. I expect to have a pretty good-sized room or two for my classes. I have been also invited to Moncure Conways's Ethical Society where I speak on the 10th. I shall have a lecture in the Balboa Society next Tuesday. 

The Lord will help. I am not sure whether I can go up with you on Saturday. You will have great fun in the country anyway, and Mr. and Mrs. Sturdy are such nice people.  

With love and blessings,


PS. Kindly order some vegetables for me. I don't care much for rice — bread will do as well. I have become an awful vegetarian now.
