DEAR PROF. GOKHALE,
I think I have told you that if I receive the funds expected fromNatal, I would settle in Bombay. Having received over Rs. 3000, I haveopened an office here and propose giving a year’s trial to this place.I need hardly repeat the assurance that you could command meat any time.I hope you are doing well constitutionally.
I remain,yours truly,

MY DEAR DEVCHANDBHAI,
I did not wish to suggest that Mr. Indrajit should be given anyresponsible work at all. His wish is to act as junior counsel in additionto your paid junior. All he wants, I suppose, is to be able to say that heappeared as Junior Counsel in a Privy Council case and possibly togain some practical knowledge.I have taken up a room from Payne, Gilbert, Sayani and Moosfor office, and a part of Keshavji Tulsidas’ Bunglow in Girgam BackRoad for residence. That is all the progress I have made so far.I have just finished the welcome draft work that Shukla sent mewhile I was in Rajkot, and am now free to lounge about the HighCourt letting the Solicitors know of an addition to the ranks of the

briefless ones.Mehta, on my going to him for a blessing, gave me a cursewhich as he said might prove a blessing. He thought, contrary to myexpectations, that I would be foolishly wasting away in Bombay mysmall savings from Natal. Wachha, I have not yet been able to see.Gokhale is not here. The Solicitors, whom I have seen, say that Iwould have to wait long before I could get any work from them. TheChief Justice is very anxious for the advancement of the juniorbarristers and only last week established a moot society for theirbenefit.Such briefly are the circumstances under which I find myself.The work is uphill. But I do not despair. I rather appreciate theregular life and the struggle that Bombay imposes on one. So long,therefore, as the latter does not become unbearable, I am not likely towish to be out of Bombay.I am very glad to learn that Manilal is doing so well.It is true that my nephew at first sent disappointing reports fromBenares: that they provide only two meals per day does still appear tome to be a drawback. But it is yet too soon to pass judgment one wayor the other. He will be able to send me more reliable reports after hehas become used to his totally new surroundings.If the rains fail in Kathiawar this time also, the outlook mustbevery serious. I am afraid the joshis

reports.Please show this to Shukla.

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.
Yours sincerely,
M. K. G
ANDHI
