This chapter contains D. T. Suzuki's letter to Paul Carus, written on September 14, 1897. In his letter, Suzuki describes his frequent attendance at Christian churches while he was in Chicago and hopes that he will be able to be acquainted with Swedenborgian, Unitarian, Society of Friends and some other churches. He also mentions William Rainey Harper, president of the University of Chicago, telling Carus that he was not inclined to enroll there, as the curriculum seemed similar to that of Tokyo Imperial University, but he would perhaps audit some lectures. In addition, Suzuki says he has not yet finished translating Aśvaghosa's book Discourse on the Awakening of Faith in the Mahayana.
