Kaimal, stamped "Superintendent Yeravda Central Prison," faint annotation in red pencil in margin, creased horizontally, light soiling, matted and framed with portrait photo and name plate to 17 1/2 x 32 inches.
Gandhi informs Kaimal he's received his letter, and admonishes, "I wish you will adopt a simple style to express simple ideas and give up all metaphor and ornamentation." He then gives Kaimal a list of six things to remember; among them, "No cause that is backed by truth is ever lost," and, "Don't mix up the loose life of modern times with a very big movement for religious reform."
