Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set



Is the condition of S dangerous or critical? If it is so or if it becomes so, it will be better to send for a French doctor who will take the responsibility of the case.

Sri Aurobindo

Was surprised to get your note, Sir. S's condition is neither dangerous nor critical, but apprehending that it might become so, we want to fetch a doctor. Rest is advisable.

I heard from S that R is anxious to treat him. I replied that I have not the least objection.

According to R it was S who was anxious and requested him three times to treat him, while R himself was circumspect and indifferent! They both wrote about it, but that was three or four days ago, before S's condition got bad. Versions, versions!

What do you say about giving R a trial in place of the French doctor? Won't that be good for S?

As he is getting better, we can do without either.

The Mother was knocked up in the small hours and informed that S was very bad and hiccoughing. I presume the French Doctor has been sent for by this time. If it is serious, let us have news 2 or 3 times a day.

No meal as yet, Sir. It is 9.30 p.m. No sleep, no rest. And still you express your surprise and grudge a doctor being given a certificate! What a sorrowful world, to say nothing else!

Poor doctors who give up rest and sleep and food, yet remain all unwept, unhonoured and unsung! Never mind! Perhaps in heaven they will have a big address given them one mile long and signed by all the angels – cherubim and seraphim together.
