Ever since you left Madras
for your home Province, which has now become an accomplished fact, I have not had the
pleasure of meeting you and continuing the great friendship that I had the privilege of
building up with you. i understand you are coming over to Madras in the next week or ten
days for the Buddha Society proceedings. May I request you to kindly make it convenient to
meet me in my bungalow during any one of the days of your stay in Madras.
I must crave your
forgiveness for requesting you to come over when normally I would have called on you
myself. But unfortunately I am confined to bed with a thigh fracture, due to cancer, which
over-powered me during my visit to Delhi on 23rd March. It looks as though I may have to
be in bed for quite a few months more before I can be any thing like my normal self again.
But return to normalcy is expecting perhaps too much in the background of my dreadful
illness. I shall certainly consider it a great privilege to receive you at my bedside if
you can possibly make it convenient to do so.
With kindest regards,
