DEAR SISTERS,





I arrived safe on Sunday and on account of illness could not write earlier. I sail on board the White Star Line Germanic tomorrow at 12 noon. With everlasting memory of love, gratitude and blessings,





I am, your ever loving brother,





VIVEKANANDA

To the Hale sisters





HIGH VIEW, READING,





20th April, 1896.





DEAR SISTERS,





Greetings to you from the other shore. The voyage has been pleasant and no sickness this time. I gave myself treatment to avoid it.





I made quite a little run through Ireland and some of the Old English towns and now am once more in Reading amidst Brahma and Maya and Jiva, the individual and the universal soul, etc. The other monk is here; he is one of the nicest of men I see, and is quite a learned monk too. We are busy editing books now.





Nothing of importance happened on the way. It was dull, monotonous, and prosaic as my life. I love America more when I am out of it. And, after all, those years there have been some of the best I have yet seen.


Are you trying to get some subscribers for the Brahmavadin?





Give my best love and kindest remembrance to Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Conger. Write me as soon as is convenient all about yourselves, and what you are doing, what breaks the monotony of eating, drinking, and cycling.





I am in a hurry just now, shall write a bigger letter later; so good-bye and may you be always happy.





Your ever affectionate brother,





VIVEKANANDA.





PS. I will write to Mother Church as soon as I get time. Give my love to Sam and sister Locke.





V.
