K. Gibran, The Wanderer, New York: Knopf, 1932.
 
Around the end of March 1931 Gibran sent the manuscript for The Wanderer: His Parables and His Sayings (1932) to Haskell for editing. The form of the work is that of The Madman and The Forerunner: the unnamed narrator tells of meeting a traveller at the crossroads “with but a cloak and staff, and a veil of pain upon his face.” The fifty short pieces are reminiscent of those in the two earlier works.

Letter of Kahlil Gibran to Juliet Thompson, New York, December 17, 1919
______________
Dear Juliet, 
I was told just now that the Weirs have decided to keep the studio and that their daughter, also a painter, is to occupy it. I wish I could tell you how sorry I am about it. I was so happy in the thought of having you as a neighbour. In the meanwhile I shall be asking everybody about studios - we may be able to find something just as good. 
I know that you have much to say about Washington and I want to hear every word. I, too, have a great deal to tell you about the Near East. One thing I am certain of is this: the great war enhanced human consciousness but not human justice. 
And may God bless you always. 
Ever yours 
Kahlil

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

Marie Louise Watters was a close friend of Gibran’s, the two met in Greenwich Village at the Arts Student League in 1918 where they both attended a ceramics course and remained friends until Gibran’s death in 1931.
