Dear Dr. Alagappa
I wrote to you on the 18th January asking you if you
would very kindly send me your plans for your Sub-
Committee of the Madras Provincial Welfare Fund of
which you are Chairman, so that they might be included in the annual report to be read at the meeting
on January 31st.
That meeting was, as you know, postponed owing to
the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. It is now to
be held on the 30th April at 6.15 p.m. and Her Excellency the Countess Mountbatten has agreed to
attend and address the meeting.
I hope that as three months have elapsed since our
talk, you will now be able to give me your plans in
their final form. I do hope that you w ll find this
possible as I must tell you quite frankly that I am
very disappointed that we have not been able to
achieve more in the way of personal donations, and I
know that you share my wish to do what we can in
this direction. I found your ideas and suggestions
very encouraging and do hope that you will be able
to implement them now.
