My dear Bulbul-e-Hind,
Though I seem to have neglected you, you have not neglected me. Thank you for it. The reason for not sending you even love letters is that work before me has taxed all my time and energy. I have not asked you to come because I have relied only on God's guidance. I do not know what I am going to say when I face beard the lion. I rely on Him giving me the word. You can fill in the details.
Love to you all.
I have your latest A.R.S.'s letter.
