P.S. It is exceedingly difficult to make arrangements for a Punjab address through which to correspond. Both B. and I had counted much upon the young man whose sentimentalism we find unfits him for the useful office of intermediary. Still, I will not cease trying and shall hope to send you the name of a post office either in the Punjab or N.W.P. where one of our friends will be passing and re-passing once or twice a month.

K. H.



  • N.W.P. refers to Northwest Provinces, an administrative district in British India.

Context and background

This is really a postscript to Mahatma Letter No. 5. Apparently it was on another sheet of paper and became separated when A. Trevor Barker made his original compilation.

Physical description of letter

The original is in the British Library, Folio 3. George Linton and Virginia Hanson described the letter in this way:

On a sheet of heavy rough greyish paper, about 6" X 8" [15.2 X 20.3 cm], in black ink. It appears to be a postscript to ML-4 (5).[1]
