76. To M A Jinnah
September 23, 1944
DEAR QAID-I-AZAM,
Last evening's talk has left a bad taste in the mouth. Our talks and our correspondence seem to run in parallel lines and never touch one another. We reached the breaking point last evening but, thank God, we were unwilling to part. We resumed discussion and suspended it in order to allow me to keep my time for the evening public prayer.
In order that all possible chance of making any mistake in a matter of this great importance may be removed, I would like you to give me in writing what precisely on your part you would want me to put my signature to.
I adhere to my suggestion that we may call in some outside assistance to help us at this stage.
Yours sincerely,
M. K. GANDHI
