Partial transcription

It may please you to know that I am planning systematic work, with a clinic attached and situated in Calicut for the whole west coast including the Native states of Coochin and Travanacore, also South Canaraand Mangalore. It may look an ambitious scheme but the need for correct information is great and where there is real need it is bound to succeed.”

…”My congratulations for the article in the Times. If he was not a good man (I mean Mr Gandhi) that enigmatic smile of his when crossed in argument and has not sensible and honest answer, I wont have any hesitation in putting it down to arrogance and stupid ignorance.

If you can get me a copy of the original un mutilated by the Editor, I should like to read it and if possible get it printed for circulation. I feel that it does us a lot of good to sometimes leave such people severely alone. Their greatness real or otherwise so much overshadows their way of thinking, that they cannot in view of their greatness argue out reasonably or admit logical conclusions. They live in a world of their own creation. That is the impression I had after reading an interview of yours with Ramana Mahrishi at Tiruvannamalai where you went to meet Mr. Paul Brunton.”
