Dear Chachi,

I was extremely sorry to hear about your bout of pneumonia. It must have been terrible to have been in hospital for two weeks. Of course Chachaji, Chinku, and Mona are there to take care of you, but they must be tired and worried.

Unfortunately, I was informed about it only today by Mrs Gori who has come down to stay with her relatives for a few days. I was shocked to know that you had  even been hospitalized for five days. Believe me, had I known. I would have come immediately to meet you and to be of some help to the family. As it is, I am leaving for Pune this Friday. I will come to see you as soon as I come back.

I am glad to know that you are now on the road to recovery. Follow the doctor’s advice and do not exert yourself much. Chachi, you are very dear to me, and nothing should happen to you.

We shall meet soon, and until then take care. My prayers are always with you.

Your loving niece,
