was very pleased with it. I have come to know about your health
as well as your service to your country. As regards the news
you heard on the radio, it requires no explanation as the world
at large knows everything. Nothing remained except the spark of
fire to start. As regards your desire to know something about
it all, what I can say to you is that we are combined together
waiting to enter the battle again. Our country's condition is
very bad. All that the news-papers have issued is quite enough.
