Lots of Love from Jaimal Singh to my obedient son, Babu Sawan Singh.
We have received an envelope containing a letter and the proof-sheet. The fact of the matter is that the ink on the printed sample of Hazur Soami Ji’s book is faint. Please tell the printer that he shouldn’t use such ink. For this purpose they should use a good quality ink. The reason why it is faint is that they have used washable ink. The printing, however, is good. I have corrected the mistakes wherever they occur on the proof-sheet. Since you also have a copy of Hazur Swami Ji’s book, in future you can correct the proof-sheets yourself. Please impress upon the printer that if the ink on even one line is faint, the whole page will be rejected. He should correct it, otherwise the whole page will need to be reprinted. The revised copy of Hazur’s book was sent to you with Babu Gajja Singh, so use it to correct each proof-sheet. Now you have both copies of the book. A letter came from Chacha Ji in which he wished all the best to everyone.
Have the printing done from Hazur Swami Ji’s book that came from Agra, but check it with the copy that Gajja Singh brought with him. One or two proof-sheets must be sent to me every week so that I can check that the ink is not too light. It is to be stressed that these books will not be printed repeatedly, and for this reason, the ink, etc., everything, must be of the highest quality. Please examine the printing yourself and strongly impress upon the printer that the ink and typeface must be of the best quality. The typeface on the sheet you have sent is good but the printing is faint.
Keep doing your Bhajan and Simran. Hari Ram sends you his respectful regards.
