After the sunnah greeting, it is with much anticipation that your letter is presently received, it gave me immense pleasure to take delivery of the same. What more can I add, except to pray from the heart with regards your aforementioned concerns. May almighty Allah grant you good health and keep you happy and contented. I continue to pray sincerely and from the heart on behalf of your parents. This is more than sufficient during Ramadhan.
That is all. Salaam

From: Moulana Abdur-Raheem Motala Sahib
My honourable brother
After the sunnah greeting and best wishes to one another. I received your correspondence and a response has been forwarded to you today, I trust it has reached you. I am pleased that the nocturnal emissions have stopped, may almighty Allah through his infinite bounty and kindness accord you an expeditious, complete, and enduring recovery. There has been no correspondence from Yakub Sajee for several days. I purchased an envelope in order to write to him, but I am short of time at present, inshallah I will write to him tomorrow, after finishing looking through the mail. If he has visited you, then kindly inform me. I presume you have received letters from dearest mother and Hazrat, and one from this unworthy posted from Varethi. I have ordered the Khameera Ga'o Zuban Anbari from Delhi ; I will bring it after Ramadhan, inshallah.
After reading today's letter tear it up, I have simply written out of necessity. This unworthy-one has made an arrangement with Molvi Ismail, I will work for six months after Ramadhan and thereafter return to Saharanpur , and Molvi Ismail will then depart. Pertaining to this, we are presently drafting a letter to the committee. Notify our family and persuade them to acquiesce, do not mention the arrangement, I would rather you told them in your own words. Inshallah I will arrive on 6 th /7 th of Shawwal.
Alert me as to your well-being post-haste. Try not to concern yourself; this is hardly an incurable illness, it is sure to wane after marriage, inshallah. The reason for coming immediately after Ramadhan is to spend a few days with you, who knows if we will ever get an opportunity to meet or to be in each other's company again. Molvi Yakub Qadhi has written and heralded the auspicious birth of a daughter. In Relation to Shabbir's luggage, kindly refer to the preceding letter. Continue to recite Durood Shareef quietly, in proportion to your endurance. I am in considerable need of your supplications during Ramadhan.
Most Contemptible Slave
