Very dearest Margaret,

Back in New York and very nice too! I appreciate it more + more.

Today I have seen Dr. Mukerji and now scold myself for not having done so as soon as I had the address for he can & I think will be of immense use to us fro the Conference in India. He won my heart saying when I told him there was a chance of you coming to India. That you would sweep India & would confer immense benefit by getting there. so you see how the Fates are conspiring to send us there. Mrs. Mukerji wrote an article about you & your work for a Bengal paper- a paper written, edited printed & published by Indian women. The article aroused great interest and was copied by a large number of papers. I do feel that I want you + me to talk to the Mukerjis about work in India and as A.P. told me there was a chance that you were coming in on Thursday I have asked him to reserve Thursday evening as I thought we could invite them to dinner somewhere near here - you mentioned an Italian rest not far away. - Would you like to invite the Stones as well? Hannah seemed quite thrilled about Conf in India & would be a great acquisition to the Conf. both of them would _ of course they would pay their own expenses. I invited Dr. Mukerji to come to London Conference & he is going to try to raise the fare. I am sure he would be a success in London. He has practiced medicine in Calcutta & is taking a diploma in Public Health at Columbia. He is in touch with R.L.S & Co & I am more than ever disgusted with them - they ought to have told him that the most important person for him to see in New York was Margaret Sanger & the most important place 17 West 16 St.

You may like to write about Thurs evg direct to Dr. Mukerji but if you like to phone in the morning I could then phone him you cd. tell me about the Stones. I will be on the about between 9 & 9:30 a.m. I have to leave at 9:30 to go to be interviewed by the Evelyn Seeley arranged by Anne Kennedy + Mrs. Belcher has invited me to lunch with her tomorrow. Friday afternoon I go to tea with Mrs. Litt.

If Thursday is impossible please suggest some other time Dr. Mukerji is usually free after noon & I do feel it is important for us to see him together.

Much love dear one
from
Edith.
