Written shortly after Gandhi's release from prison

ALS in Gujarati, signed “Blessings from Bapu,” penned on a 3.5 x 5.5 postal card, June 26, 1944. Handwritten letter sent to "Dear sister,", which reads (translated): "At least we hope that [Sasti Kriya] will be succeeded. But if an accident occurs, then come here at any day till 30th. You indeed need only 2 minutes to talk. Can mother go somewhere leaving her daughter in Sevagram? So if Sumita wishes, surely bring her. Blessings to all." Reverse is also addressed in Gandhi's hand: "Shri Nandubahen, D. V. M. Desai Marg, Purushottam Building, New Queens Road, Opposite Opera House, Bombay 4." In fine condition.

Originates from the collection of Dr. Balvantrai N. Kanuga, Gandhi's personal long-term physician and friend.
