Dearest Molvi Yusuf Sahib
After the sunnah greeting, I received a letter from Al-Haj Ibrahim Bismillah Sahib and included within the said letter a list of 40 persons wishing to give fealty. I in turn wrote to him, advising him that it would be preferable if he wrote to you dearest Yusuf, that he might visit one evening and take their fealty on my behalf, on condition they all live in one place or able to congregate in one place. Should these persons invite you, then kindly trouble yourself for just one night, if this is not possible, I have given him written instructions on how to take fealty.
Further, he sent one-Pound Sterling requesting the Prescriptive Prayer Booklet. I do not have many, and there are difficulties in sending them, therefore I have written to Molvi Naseer Sahib to send him a few by registered airmail. To my recollection, it was Molvi Yakub Sahib or someone else who notified me that the English and Urdu versions are in print in London. If you are aware of the address, kindly notify him of the same in order he request them directly. If not, you may arrange the Urdu version to be printed, given that the numerous requests for fealty from London are through your solicitations.
The person who arrived from London by car, whom I have mentioned in a previous letter, is leaving for Medina Munawwara soon, his intention is to visit for a week and thereafter return home by car. I am considering sending some dates under his aegis, should they reach you in good condition kindly confer 50 pieces to Ibrahim Ahmed, in order he distribute one piece each to these friends as a blessing.
I have dispatched a letter to you; I trust you received it. It is your responsibility to watch over those friends that I entrust to your care. Minister them through letters and visits.
That is all. Salaam
Hazrat Sheikh-ul-Hadith Sahib

From this lowly one: Sunnah greetings and a request for supplications.
