To Dr. Paul Carus
I am in this place now and had to change some of my plans on account of the Toronto Congress.
I am therefore not quite sure whether I will be able to come to Oak Island Conference. It is very possible, however, that I will be able to do so.
I also hope Mr. [Charles Carroll] Bonney will come. He is a noble, noble soul — one who sincerely wishes the fellowship of all humanity.
Is it not true, Dr., that Mr. Bonney, as I have every reason to think, originated the plan of the parliament of religions?
I will certainly try my best to come.
Thanking you very much for your kindness, I remain
Ever yours in the Lord of Compassion,
P.S. Will you kindly inform me what lines of thought you want me to take.
