Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set

“What letter” indeed! Very well, I won't call it a letter, call it remarks or lines, so long as it is not your marginal! Perhaps you are waiting for a Sunday?

I am waiting for a day when I won't have to race to finish everything before 7 a.m. in the morning.

“Over the lone heights in the still air roamed,” but roamed what, Sir?

How the deuce am I to know? I wrote what came as a metrical example and the roamer didn't come in view.

Whatever you touch becomes so beautiful, Sir. The line is roaming and humming in my mind. Oh, if you could complete it! don't say “some day”, Sir, which is equivalent to “never”!

Well, if not some day, some night perhaps.

About B.P. – we can take him to Valle or Andre1 who, I presume, know more about his illness.

No. If all fails, we will hand him over to R. But B.P. has no reaction against his illness – that is the trouble.

Well, in my chase for a dispensary guard,2 I have found Mulshankar who is very willing to do it for an hour or two, though lame.

Yes. Mulshankar has written and we have answered that he can do this work.

For J's eczema, Pavitra put three essential factors:

1. Sunbath after oiling.3

2. Cold bath immediately4 after sunbath.

Mother thought he did it after sunbath. But if it is the other way round his example must be followed – as it is his cure.

3. Cold bath should begin with the head to obviate any danger of catching cold by sudden exposure.

Yes – that is necessary.
