    Estimate

    GANDHI, Mohandas K. (1869-1948). Autograph postcard signed ('M.K. Gandhi'), to Faizul Hasan ('respected brother'), Delhi, 6 July 1947, IN URDU, 'I admit that God will make everything better', one page, small 8vo, two postmarks.

    Gandhi was an admirer of the Urdu script, and one of his last articles for his journal Harijan was in defence of it: the brief note here may be intended to show off his own prowess.
