Letter of Kahlil Gibran to Marie Louise Watters, New York, Aug. 24, 1929
 
Dear Marie Louise, 
I am delighted to hear that you are coming to New York sometime in September. It will be so good to see you again. I have not been well-and I have been out of the world for a long time, and my heart is full of deep silence, unsung songs. And I am extremely restless. All these are signs of old age. Perhaps they are signs of a second youth in that I feel I must express myself in new forms of beauty. Do let me know more about your coming East. With exception of a short visit to this or that place now New York, I shall be free throughout the month of September. Please remember me in kindliness to your mother, and then to other members of your family. 
Ever faithfully, 
Kahlil
