DEAR DR. SAPRU,
I was delighted to receive your letter. Of course, I knew why you were not writing to me. I could never be guilty of thinking that the absence of any letter from you was due to want of affection or courtesy.
I am still trying to regain my lost strength. It is slowly coming to me.
I am trying all I can to overtake the orthodox prejudices against Harijans. I quite agree with you that "our attitude towards them is the darkest blot on our character". I know that in this matter I can rely upon your wholehearted assistance, but in writing to me I don't like your confining yourself merely to the Harijan question. You may not take any active part in politics or political discussions, but, surely you will not debar friends from the benefit of your advice, guidance and ripe experience. Whatever may be the differences between us in our outlook, you know that I have very high regard for you and your opinions. I would, therefore, like you to give me briefly your London experiences and the opinion you have formed upon them.
Seth Jamnalalji joins me in sending you regards,
Yours sincerely,
M. K. GANDHI
