Dear Prabhas Babu:
In further reference to my last letter sent in reply to your letter dated April 2, 1969, I am surprized that the packages sent by Jayagovinda das Brahmachary as well as those sent by Atma Ram & Sons have not yet been sent. You acknowledged that these goods are ready to be shipped in your letter of April 2, 1969, but you have still not shipped them. I could understand that there was a delay on account of Pibhuti Babu's disappearance, but why are they still delayed? Please let me know why the shipping of our goods is so tremendously delayed. Kindly treat this letter as very urgent, and let me know why my goods have not been shipped yet.
