GANDHI, MOHANDAS K. 1869-1948.
Autograph Letter Signed ("Bapu"-in Gujarati), 1 2/3 pp (recto and verso), small 4to, in Gujarati, Sabarmati, March 19, 1925, to Behram Nowroji Khambatta, fine.

Gandhi replies to a friend's request for advice on whether to journey to Europe to seek medical care for his child. In part, in translation: "Your son has my blessings ... We must have faith in God. I do not see any harm in allowing a local doctor to perform the operation, if he is willing to take the risk. Have you consulted Nana Deshmukh? Tell Jal to be brave. Keep me informed ... If the doctors at the jail are afraid to take the chance or if you are not at peace, you may certainly go to Europe. Do not consider my letter as either an order or a refusal. We must not act impulsively, and remember the body is not immortal so one must not be excessively attached. That is what I would like to advise you ....
