March 13, 1976Dear Family,
It was nice talking to you this afternoon (morning for you all). I didn't feel it necessary to call (since I telegrammed) but Banerjee thought to make sure. I wish the connection had been better there was more I would have like to have said – and explained better.
As I tried to explain – I'm in perfect health now – just making up for the time I was sick in December.
Now – I'll either be flying on the 22nd or 23rd – thus arriving in Columbus either the 23rd or 24th flight 151 – about 8:30 pm. Hope this is convenient for you all. In India you don't make plane reservations w/ the ease & speed that you can make them in other parts of the world!
We may be going to Bhopal –(North) – today Banerjee is in Poona. We were going to make the train ride as before – then company decided to fly him so I decided just to stay here in Bombay. Spent today w/ Mehtas. Nice family – especially the daughter-in-law – 19 years old. Speaks little English.
Hope this reaches you – I'll wait till we can talk IN PERSON for telling you other things – still playing cards ––
Hope my change of plans have not upset anyting. JB – I'll be home – not going to miss you – we have to talk about Dream Farm.
