Highness will recollect that you handed over to me a cheque for Rs. 1,00,000 (One lakh)
some time ago which I returned to you. I am now writing to suggest that this amount may be
paid as a donation to the Somanatha Fund. Somanatha is an ancient heritage of ours, and we
have to take every care to see that the temple and its environments are maintained in a
manner worthy of their ancient traditions.
this purpose, we propose to constitute a Trust. Your Highness will remember that Sardar
made an appeal for funds for the Somanatha Trust some time ago. The object, therefore, is
one which deserves full support from all patriotic Indians and that is why I am making
this suggestion. I shall be grateful for a line in reply."
