To Mrs. G. W. Hale





[New York


April 25, 1895]


Dear Mother,


I was away a long time in the country. Came back day before yesterday.


I think the summer coat is in Chicago. If so, will you kindly send it over c/o Miss Phillips, 19 W. 38 Str., New York? It is getting hot here every day.


I will remain in New York till the end of May, at least.


Hoping you are all in perfect health. I remain yours truly,


Vivekananda

To Dr. I. Janes





54 W. 33 NEW YORK,


25th April, 1895.


DEAR BROTHER,


I was away in the Catskill mountains and it was almost impossible to get a letter regularly posted from where I was — so accept my apology for the delay in offering you my most heartfelt thanks for your letter in the "Eagle".


It was so scholarly, truthful and noble and withal so permeated with your natural universal love for the good and true everywhere. It is a great work to bring this world into a spirit of sympathy with each other but it should be done no doubt when such brave souls as you still hold your own. Lord help you ever and ever my brother and may you live long to carry on the mighty work you and your society has undertaken.


With my gratitude and love to you and to the members of the Ethical Society.





I remain Yours ever truly,





VIVEKANANDA.

To Mrs. G. W. Hale





54 W. 33.


New York


[April 26, 1895]


Dear Mother,


Perhaps you did not receive my letter asking you to send the Calcutta pamphlets about the Paramahamsa Ramakrishna. Kindly send them to me at 54 W. 33, and also the pamphlets about the Calcutta meeting if you have any. Also the summer coat to the care of Miss Phillips, 19 W. 38.


As I do not see any probability of my going soon to Chicago, I am thinking of drawing all my money from the Chicago bank to New York. Will you kindly ascertain the exact total amount I have in Chicago so that I may draw it out at once and deposit it in some New York bank?


Kindly do these and I will bother you no more. I have written to India long ago about the rugs. I do not know whether Dewanji 89 is alive or dead. I have no information.


I am all right and will be more than a month yet in New York. After that I am going to the Thousand Islands--wherever that place may be--for a little summer quiet and rest. Mrs. Bagley has been down here to see me and attended several of my classes.


The classes are going on with a boom; almost every day I have one, and they are packed full. But no "money"--except they maintain themselves. I charge no fees, except as the members contribute to the rent etc. voluntarily.


It is mostly probable that I will go away this summer.


With my love to all,


Ever gratefully yours,


Vivekananda
