My dear Mr. Dar:

Long time no hear; long time no see! How are you? Busy as usual, if not more so, I am sure.

I was shocked indeed to learn of the untimely death of our good friend, Colonel Uni Niar. Will you be good enough to extend my deepest sympathy to both Mrs. Niar and Madam Pundit, for the loss of this Patriot.

It was my privelege to meet him when I was in Washington, a year or so ago. A most pleasant personality, I found him, with serious mind, well informed and of patriotic disposition. Glory to our Mother Land who produces such wholesome individuals!

May I ask you to please send me a biographical sketch and an 8 x 10 photograph of Colonel Uni Niar. Also I am preparing a special issue for Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. Oct 2 and I would appreciate a couple of good pictures of Mahatmaji in some suitable pose, as soon as possible.

I was glad to hear of Madame Pundit's appointment as Ambassador to Mexico, as well; kindly extend her my very best wishes.

Please keep in touch with me whenever the inclination and time permits. I miss our congenial meetings and our discussions.

With every good wish for you and yours,

Sincerely yours,

(Dr.) Bhagwan Singh Gyanee

P.S. May I have Mrs. Niar's address, I would like to send her my person condolence. Many Thanks.
