4 Dear Mr Merriman
5
6 I was glad indeed to see your remarks on the Indians. Im It is not
7waving their little Union Jacks in the faces of other people that
8makes the true ^& good^ Imperialist; but trying by justice & love to
9draw nearer all the races who make it. With out love & fellow feeling
10Imperialism is a hideous sham.
11
12 I should like much to speak ^write^ on the Indian question, but am not
13able to now
14
15 I am arriving on the 21st in Cape Town & sail for Europe on the 6th of
16Dec to seek medical advice.
17
18 I hope I shall see you to shake hands before I leave.

20 Your very sincere, ^& wellintentioned^ if ^if^ "mis-guided" friend,
