CERTIFICATE FROM MR. W. D. EDWARDS, AUTHOR AND PRACTISING BARRISTER IN THE SUPREME COURT OF JUDICATURE IN ENGLAND RECOMMENDING GANDHIJI'S NAME FOR ADMISSION AS AN ADVOCATE OF THE HIGH COURT OF BOMBAY
11, Stone Buildings
Lincoln's Inn
9th June 1891

I beg to recommend Mr. M. K. Gandhi of the Inner Temple, who has been proposed for call to the Bar in England in the present term (Trinity 1891), and who as I understand will be duly called on the 10th instant, as a fit and proper person, upon his admission to the English Bar, to be admitted to practise as an advocate of the High Court of Bombay. Mr. Gandhi has resided in England for a period of about three years during which he has kept terms for the Bar. I believe that his career as a student of the Inns of Court has been in every respect creditable to him, and that he is a gentleman of unexceptionable character.
