After the sunnah greeting. Yesterday afternoon I received your telegram that has given rise to a great deal worry and anxiety. I impatiently wait for details of the accident and your well-being. I look forward to receiving your letter in the next few days as this telegram was sent 30th October and received on 1st November. If you have had a letter written by someone then I hope to receive it in the next few days. I trust you have written a letter. I am extremely restless and worried.

Dearest Honourable Brother
After the sunnah greeting. I sincerely hope you are well. The telegram you sent to Hazrat was received yesterday; naturally it gave rise to immense concern. I spent all night worrying. I awoke many times during the night thinking about you. Some time ago this lowly-one saw a dream pertaining to you. Ever since you wrote in relation to your journey I have been constantly praying for your safety and security in reaching your destination, however that which is preordained is unavoidable. What can I do except pray? I have prayed constantly. May almighty Allah grant you swift convalescence. And hope we meet very soon.
Inform me straight away if possible as to your well-being, either by telegram or letter. Hazrat is extremely concerned and prays profusely and urges others to pray as well. Kindly inform Hazrat as to your well-being as soon as possible. This lowly-one doesn’t require a dedicated letter as such. What more can I say? Convey my sunnah greetings to the two parties involved and to your companions. God willing you are not seriously injured. Remain content with providence. Be patient and have courage and enjoin the parties involve the same.
That is all. Salaam
Lowest of creatures Abdur-Raheem Surati
