Nehru: To Mother, from Highgate (Jul 01, 1905)

July 1, 1905 

My dear Mother [1],

I was happy to receive your letter. I am quite well. You need not worry about me at all. I have not yet met Birju Bhai [2] but I shall see him in a day or two. He should have finished his examinations today. He will come here day after tomorrow. He has taken rooms which are quite near our place. Here the weather these days is very fine, neither too cold nor too hot.

I received a postcard from Nanni. Her photograph is very much like her. Love and kisses to her from me.

Namaskars and love,

from your loving son
