You are devoted to work more than I. Why did you part compaby with Gandhiji? Actually you were supposed to take my place. I was sorry to read your letter. The idea that there is lot of artificialness and falsefood in our activities. In signing the oath, many people have deceived us and Gandhiji. You will send me a list of persons who neither spin on the Charka nor wear Khadi. You may give them a warning that their names would be reported and just see what effect would it have on them.

Kasturba writes : Received your letter. I have been worried because of the riots. Ramdas and others are in Ahmedabad. Hence, worried about them. But it is no use merely worrying. God's will. Because of riots at places and heavy rains at others, we are in trouble everywhere: Don't know what God has ordained. No news from S. Africa for the last two and half months. Here also there were heavy rains for six days accompanied by dusty winds. Bapuji is well, but lot of work for him as usual. Gandhiji adds a few words to enquire about Madhavdas having started any new venture:
