3. LETTER TO D. B. SHUKLA
November 3, 1902
MY DEAR SHUKLA,
I have your letter. Yes, I received a cablegram from Natal askingme if I could
go to London and thence to the Transvaal. I repliedsaying no unless it was absolutely
necessary. Just then my childrenwere ill and in any case I do not yet feel strong
enough for the mentalstrain a visit to London and South Africa would require. I have
not yetheard in reply to the cable from me.
I cannot yet say, I have begun to feel my way about here. I amnot, however,
anxious about the future. So far the office work has paidmy expenses which I see
will reach a higher figure than we thoughtthere.I am very glad you have been retained for the prosecution in theNajawala
case. For more reasons than one, I hope you will succeed insecuring a conviction.I do not know whether letter-heads for a Barrister are in goodtaste. Whether
they are or not, mine are a present from Durban and Ihave been using them though
not yet for office work.The Plague must have changed the face of Rajkot. I hope it isnow on the wane.
