MY DEAR AMRIT,
Your letter to Choudhury has told. He has taken it in the rightspirit. There was no occasion for apology. And if you cannot call aspade a spade to your own people in your own home, whichMaganwadi is, where could you do so? You
must 
repeat theperformance, whenever the occasion arises. This size is especiallyprepared for you. But you will give me your criticism on it. For thestinking lot you have to pay nothing. Has the stink gone withexposure to the sun and the air?Puri should send his detailed criticism without delay. He mustnot wait for the time when he comes here. I must not be kept indarkness.I am eating your apples with vengeance. And I needed them.They and
musambis
have acted like medicine.Mira is free from fever. But she is still terribly weak and thedigestive apparatus does not respond as it should. In spite of big dosesof Eno’s Fruit Salt, she has to take the enema in order to get aclearance. But there is no anxiety on her behalf. You won’t get fullmarks as a good nurse, nor Shummy as a good doctor, unless betweenyou two [you] make Pyarelal take milk and your excellent butter. HasShummy anything to add to what I have given

3. LETTER TO PURUSHOTTAM GANDHI 
September 23, 1935
CHI. PURUSHOTTAM,
I have your letter. If I didn’t know you, I would be displeased toget no letter from you. I console myself thinking that you must havesome good reason for not writing to me, either that you want to savemy time or to save yours. According to my nature, I would rather thatpersons like you wrote to me frequently so that I could know thembetter and hence could also help.I have not yet been able to go through the report of the Harijanwork in Kathiawar. I do wish to read it. What you write aboutChhaganlal has disturbed me. The Harijan work there must not suffer.And we cant’t also afford Jivanlal losing interest in it. Can you makeany suggestion? After your letter, it is not possible for me to keep stilland do nothing. Can I use the contents of your letter in writing to

DEAR SATISBABU,
I have gone through your correspondence with Malkani. Ienclose a copy of my letter to him which speaks for itself. AboutSharma our letters have crossed each other. Biswanath has got to behelped against himself.

I do not suppose I know him at all but fromthe correspondence with Annada I have gathered the impression thathe is one of your faithful workers. But whether he is that or not, hemust not be allowed to go astray for want of attention. Therefore evenif you have to neglect your work a bit and if he would not come aloneto me, you should bring him with you. That is of course if you think that his being with me is not likely to aggravate his disease. This is
