49. 10 May 1974

Dear Revered Sri Chinmoy,

I thank you so much indeed for your very kind letter of 3 May 1974, which I received together with a bound volume of the 1973 issues of the UN Meditation Group’s monthly bulletin. I look forward to reading it as soon as I am fit enough to do so.

After two major operations I am still receiving chemo-therapy treatment and, of course, I am doing meditation every day. I am confident that I will fully recover my health in a few months time.

Needless to say, I am deeply touched by your prayers, love and concern for my health.
