To Miss Isabelle McKindley

528, 5TH AVE., NEW YORK,
24th Jan., 1895.
Dear Miss Bell,
I hope you are well. . . .
My last lecture was not very much appreciated by the men but awfully so by vemen. You know this Brooklyn is the centre of anti-women’s rights movements; and when I told them that women deserve and are fit for everything, they did not like it of course. Never mind, the women were in ecstasies.
I have got again a little cold. I am going to the Guernseys. I have got a room downtown also where I will go several hours to hold my classes etc. Mother Church must be all right by this time, and you are all enjoying this nice weather. Give Mrs. Adams mountain high love and regard from me when you see her next.
Send my letters as usual to the Guernseys.
With love for all,

Ever your aff. bro.,


To Sister Christine

24th Jan. ’95 [’96]
Dear Christina,
I have not heard from you [for] long. Hope everything is going on well with you and Mrs. Phunkey [Funke].
Did you receive my poem? 106 I had a letter from Mrs. Phelps today. I am coming to Detroit next March early, as I will have to finish my February course in New York. The public lectures will be printed as they are delivered right along. The class lectures will very soon be collected and edited in little volumes.
May the Lord bless you ever and ever.
Yours ever with love and blessings,
