Very Urgent         {No. 103         Central Jail
condemned Cell }


My Dear Jai Deo!

I hope you would have heard of our abandoning the fast after 16 days, and you can guess how greatly do we feel the necessity of your help at this stage. We received a few oranges yesterday but no interview was held. Our case has been adjourned for a fortnight. Therefore kindly arrange to send a tin of ‘Craven Cigarettes - A’ and a tin of ghee immediately. And a few oranges along with a few rasgullas will also be welcomed. Mr. Dutta is facing hard times without cigarettes. Now you can understand the urgent nature of our needs.

                Thanking you in advance.

                                                Yours Sincerely

                                                Bhagat Singh

Address—To, Mr. Jai Deo Prasad Gupta, c/o The provincial Congress committee

                                                                Bradlaugh Hall, Lahore
