Those who pause and hesitate and are the most cautious before entering into the spirit of an entirely new scheme are to be generally far more relied upon than those who rush into every new enterprise like so many flies into a bowl of boiling milk. If H.S.O. refuses to accept D. then he will lose J. and with him about two
dozen of the best men of Galle, and he will ruin this Society. Let him consider well before he refuses. It is but prejudice and injured pride. H.S.O. must learn to disappear and vanish before the President of the Parent Society. This is Maha Sahib’s answer.
