To Alberta Sturges





14 GREYCOAT GARDENS,


WESTMINSTER, LONDON S.W.,





3rd Dec., 1896.





DEAR ALBERTA,





Herewith I enclose a letter of Mabel to Joe Joe to you. I have enjoyed the news* in it very much and so I am sure you will. 





I am to start from here for India on the 16th and to take the steamer at Naples. I will, therefore, be in Italy for some days and in Rome for three or four days. I will be very happy to look in to say good-bye to you.





Capt. and Mrs. Sevier from England are going to India with me, and they will be with me in Italy of course. You saw them last summer.





I intend to return to the U.S. and to Europe thence in about a year. 





With all love and blessings,





VIVEKANANDA.





* The news was that Mabel MacLeod, her mother's cousin, was going to be married





- Alberta Sturges was in Rome at the time.

To Sister Nivedita





14, GREYCOAT GARDENS


WESTMINSTER, S.W.





5 December 1896





DEAR MISS NOBLE 





Many thanks for sending the kind present from Mr. Beatty. I have written to him acknowledging his beautiful gift.





As for you, my dear, noble, kind friend, I only would say this — we Indians lack in many things, but there is none on earth to beat us in gratefulness. I remain,





Ever yours gratefully,





VIVEKANANDA
