My dear father,
As I told you when we meet last, I have been sending applications to several companies to secure an opening in some career or the other. Well, the replies have started coming in. All of them are routine replies of rejection, but just this morning I got a letter from Megagramme Ltd., Mumbai. They have a vacancy for the post of a field assistant and have called me for an interview on 23rd July. As Mumbai is just four hours away by train from Pune, I shall leave in the morning and return the same evening. This will save me the expense of staying there. But I do need money for the train journey, food and transport in Mumbai itself. So please send me Rs. 2500/- by money order as soon as you receive this letter.
I will let you know how I have fared in the interview. I hope fare well and get the job. It will enable me to send you some money every month to supplement the family income. I seek your blessings and best wishes.
Love to Mum, Naji and Reji.
