ག. ༣ -་་་་་ ་་་་་་་་་་་ : - " musuhananap their merit and capability and thereby support the Asram and themselves. I take up the duty to work and build it up, and pay a little from my humble purse. In the first instance we have got to build up an aecomodation of an humble nature, not a costly building, and provide such appliances as are needed for making articles of domestic utility. I am sorry to find that although I have spent a large sum of money towards plant and stock for printing and publishing the Anathbondhu and have been sending the journal prepaid to the best people of India, I find but poor support which is far from encouraging. I have secured a plot of land near Baidya nathdham for the location of the Asram and I hope my patrons and friends will approve of my selection. It is a sacred and sanitary place. I presume my Journal has not been perused in some places, and that is why I do not get any response to my appeal from such quarters. The printing of the portrait of the eminent men of india in true colours is very expensive, printing life-sketches too, in these days of war when everything is expensive, is also costly and I believe if my patrons and friends do not come forward to help me early, the project of publishing the Album of the Indian Noblemen shall have to be abandoned My strength and energy is yet full, though I am seventy. But it may fail shortly and my scheme will then become a mere dream to me, although ny services to the noblemen from the Deccan to the Himalayas, from Karachi to ), . . . Assaffi and Sylhet dates over half a century and my noble customers all over the country generally know me personally. I expect my appeal will be received with confidence and action taken at once. Finally I appeal for quick despatch of the photos and life-sketches, the subscription to the Anathbondhu, and any support that may be given to the Annapurna Asram, as I intend to start making bricks. My appeal is, Ist-Subscription of only Rs.10 a year for the Anathbandhu, 2nd-From the noblemen whose portrait and life-sketches are being printed in the pages of the Amathbandhu Rs. 500 or upwards if they are charitably and piously inclined to help the work of the Annapurna Asram, 3rd-Price of the Album of the Noblemen of India in English Rs. 800, to subscribers paying in advaa’e Rs. 250. I believe my honorarium, I expect from my noble patrons and friends, is fair, which again goes to help the poor, and if co-operation is given I hope to build up the Asram for the poor soon. The Asram will be a monument of the charitable and intelligent people who will be glad and proud of such an Institution. Yours obediently, K. P. Mookherjee. 7, Warterlooo Street, CMIOUTT.
