Dr.Chettiar's Correspondence

letter to Malcolm MacDonald Esq.,


Dr.RM.Alagappa Chettiar 


       1st May, 56

Dear Mr. Malcolm MacDonald,

I am most grateful to you for your kind letter of April 4, expressing concern at the unforeseen relapse of my ailment and wishing me speedy recovery.

After the Deep X-ray Therapy treatment, I was brought back to my residence from the Nursing Home about three weeks ago. I am, however, still lying in bed, patiently hoping that sometime soon I would atleast be able to sit up though, I am told, it may take a few more months for me to be on my feet again It is God's will and has to be patiently borne.

I am happy to inform you that my Educational Trust is starting a College of Physical Education at Karaikudi in July and His Highness the Rajpramukh of Mysore has consented to kindly inaugurate this institution. I am keenly looking forward to the privilege of receiving you in our campus one day after the college re-opens for the academic session. I shall feel grateful if you would kindly keep me informed when you programme a visit to the South so that I can arrange a day for you at Karaikudi which is but 50 miles down South of Trichirapalli Airport, on the main road to Rameswaram.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

Sd...RM.Alagappa Chettiar
