          17th August, '56..

Dear Prof. Thacker,

I have sent you an invitation yesterday for the inauguration of the Alagappa College of Physical Education on the 27th August by His Highness the Maharaja of .Mysore. How I wish I could have the happiness of my presence at Karaikudi. But my health is such, doctors are still wondering as to whether I could be carried atleast in a stretcher to by. physically present at Karaikudi so as to give me some psychological, satisfaction of being present on ~hat day, though not participate in any manner in the function. I shall be happy to have a message from you, Prof. Thacker, as one of our colleagues in the Trust and a valued friend of mine. Kindly do send one.

I have just received a letter from your office saying that the next Governing Body Meeting is fixed for 20th September. But to me all these events are just dreams - myself being immobillsed to bed for months already and for many more months according to doctors. I can only have the privilege of meeting you when you come down South. How I wish I could have that rare happiness particularly so to enable me to have a discussion with you about the proposed University at Karaikudi and to have your advice, guidance what is more your genuine assistance which you alone can render.

With kindest regards,

Yours sincerely,
Sd..RM. Alagappa Chettiar
