Oct. 22

Oct. 22 I am way behind in my diary and partly because of illness. I am writing this to Gavin because I am getting ready to send him a number of books. Three on mathematics are for Lloyd and perhaps one on science. I have written Lloyd therefore. The others are to be kept by Gavin either permanently... Sign in to see full entry.

This is Sunday October 14 and it finds me in Bombay with a diary badly neglected. On October 1 I made a mistake in trying to leave Pondicherry and by this mistake met Mirza which was a Godsend.

Pondicherry, October 2, 1956

Pondicherry, October 2, 1956 My Dear Harry: I just remembered “Fescue to the rescue” when I last posted you a letter from Hyderabad.

Pondicherry October 1, 1956 My dear Professor Seroking, It is indeed a strange experience to find oneself in a realized “Shangrila” or “Shambhala,” to find, in fact, what has appeared in book or legend.
