He has printed letterhead “Birth Control Information Centre” Calicut Branch, listing MS as the President and Sundaram as the Medical Director. Asks her for a letter as Pres saying that he can use this title.

Able to obtain press from Editor of the Malayalam Daily, “as much space as I need twice a week” with a circulation of 15K daily; and a weekly edition.

My idea of a clinic for my town of Calicut is slowly taking shape but as you know by this time in India that the main difficulty is MONEY. I shall have to get over it somehow. The work has to be done. If instead of wasting their money in mere swank and show at Madras, they would give us a share for our work in Calicut, it is my honest belief that we can do real work and be a live centre and help the activities of the branches in the other parts of the Presidency. If you are at any time  corresponding with the great Sir V. Ramesam at Madras, you may give him a hint about it.”

Asks her to let him know if she learns of any paying position for birth control in her travels, because if he could get a paid job he could be able to get a full-time honorary worker.
