Dr.Chettiar's Correspondence

letter to Sri H. Sitaram Reddiar,


Dr. RM. Alagappa Chetttar

Alagappa College P.O

      30th July, 48

Dear Sri Sitarama Reddiar,

I am afraid I have a feeling of having woke up after a dream; the author of the mischief for that dream was in fact, I find, no other than~ the friend to whom I am writing this letter. Both in prospect and in retrospect, the grand idea of the Foundation of the Research Institute at Karaikudi was truly noble and exhilarating. The actual function was even grander, and every one of the vast multitude that gathered walked away with the one impression of sheer delight at the perfection of the function. Please accept my humble gratitude for the unlimited affection and love that you have all along shown to me and, more than that, in my cause. My only prayer is that the great cause so nobly started under such fine~ auspices will be followed up by quick and energetic work in the completion of the structure

With kind regards Yours very sincerely,

Sd...RM.Alagappa Chettiar

The Honourable Sri H. Sitaram Reddiar,
Minister for Industries,
Fort St. George, Madras.
