MY DEAR AGATHA,
I have your letter. Extra copies of 
 Harijan
will be sent to you.Your description of the meeting in the S. E. of London isentertaining.Do not expect me to write another autobiography unless youwould send me to prison for a fairly long term and procure thenecessary permission to write it there. The papers can certainly becollected and printed. Mahadev can do it best. But he is overloadedwith work. Nevertheless I shall see what is possible.I do hope C. F. Andrews was able to go to his sisters. Yes, it isgood he proposed to stay there for two weeks. According to his cable,he should have started ere this reaches you. But if he is still there,please tell him he can stay longer if he likes. For the moment I amreconciled to the outdoor life.Mira is absorbed in her garden work from early morning to latein the evening. Do not expect any letter from her for some time. Yousee, we are trying to become villagers but we are [far] from the thing.She is the whole-hogger among us all.I am purposely not writing anything to C. F. A. as I expect hewill have left before this is in your hands.Love.

CHI. MARY,
If you had told me what to send I would have sent the amount.But you are in the midst of friends. Let the bills come, they would behonoured nevertheless. If you want me to send you cash please write.

I have told you in my wire that I could easily arrange for yourexamination in Bombay or Nagpur. My impression is that there is theapparatus in Wardha also. But if the friends there advise otherwise,their advice should be followed.We were all glad to see Duncan

. He does not look strong. He willbe here for two days.Chandra is selfish. She prefers to be on the floor from whichthere is no fall. And she would watch the fun of my slipping from thebed down to the floor and probably having a bump on the forehead.Tell her I shall succumb to none of her wiles.Love.

5. LETTER TO AMRIT KAUR
 April 26, 1935
MY DEAR AMRIT,
I have your letter.The sooner you go to Simla, the better. You will do what work you can from there. It is well to recognize your limitations. Evidentlyboth of you need the change.Of course your yarn will be utilized. You will have to spin formany months at the present rate before I can get a sari for Ba and aloin-cloth for myself. But that is not just now of consequence. All thatwill come after your second training here. It is a tragedy that youcannot find anyone in all Jullundur who knows all the processes.When one comes to think of it, the progress of spinning among theso-called cultured classes is very little.Dalip Singh will find when he settles down to work among theHarijans that they have skill enough to earn a living but that aslabourers they do not get employment as easily as the others and thatas artisans they do not find customers for their wares. No doubtimprovement can be and should be made in their method of dealingwith hide. But this will follow his taking up the work. He need notwork as a representative of our organization. He can work independently and yet get all the technical assistance he may needfrom us to the extent of our capacity.The rain did interfere with our work at Indore but not much. Itdamaged the village crafts exhibition that was held as a side show. Thewomen’s meeting too went off quite nicely. Thousands of them cameout, many perhaps for the first time in their lives.Love.
Yours
 ,
