My dear Jawaharlal,
I have your letter. I have not wired, as I do not think there are any Pathans at Dandi and, if there are, we shall cope with them. The advent even of good and true friends from the Frontier will cause complications. I want to present at Dandi, if I am allowed to reach it, the one issue without any avoidable complications. Things seem to be shaping very well indeed in Gujarat.
I am surprised that they have already arrested so many in Rae Bareli. I feel you are right in confining your attention to the salt tax for the time being. We shall know during the next fortnight what more we can or should do.
Unless you hear from me to be contrary, please take 6th April as the date for simultaneous beginning.
It is now nearing 10 p.m., so good night.
