To Mrs. Ole Bull
30 November 1899
MY DEAR DHIRA MATA —
I am going to leave this place tonight. They have given me a new trunk — a big one. The Maspero book1 is with me, only the second volume. The first volume must be in Boston. Kindly send it c/o Joe [Miss Josephine MacLeod].
They have been very kind. Madame [Emma] Calvé‚ came to see me day before yesterday. She is a great woman.
I have nothing to write here except that Margo [Sister Nivedita] is doing very well, except some people were complaining last night that she frightened them with her assertion that Swami can not make mistakes!!!
Hope things are going on with you very well. This is in haste. I write in length from California.
Ever your son,
My love to Mrs. [Olea] Vaughn. (Mrs. Ole Bull’s daughter.)
