[Miss MacBean mistook Gandhiji for Virchand Gandhi who had visited the United States.]

June 13, 1931

Dear Madam,
I have your letter for which I thank you. You are giving me credit of which I am wholly undeserving. You are thinking of another Mr. Gandhi my name-sake but in no way related to me. He and I were however friends and lived together for some time. You will be sorry to hear that he died many years ago, leaving an only son.
It was he who visited America and made many friends. I have never had the privilege of visiting your continent.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Emelia MacBean
