To Mrs. Alice (Shanti) Hansbrough
102 E. 58th Street
3rd July 1900
My dear Mrs. Hansbrough–
This is to introduce Swami Turiyananda. The lady who gave the piece of land for Vedanta work belongs to Los Angeles. She has taken Turiyananda with her. He is a great spiritual teacher–but has no experience in platform work.
The best thing would be to help him to start a centre for quiet and rest and meditation in the land near San Jose.
With all love to the holy Trinity. 156
Ever yours in the Lord,
To Sister Christine
[On July 3, 1900, before departing for Detroit with Swami Turiyananda and Miss Minnie Boock, Swami Vivekananda dispatched a telegram.]
