Dear Sir:
Our attention has been drawn to
the editorial, in The Summer Daily of
the 26th instant, headed, "Hindu and
Other Radicals." There are state-
ments in the communication referred
to in the editorial, and in parts of
the editorial itself, which are liable to
lead to a misunderstanding of our at-
titude regarding the political situa-
tion in our country. The word "radi-
cal" in India has been associated with
the revolutionary party believing in
violence, and preaching the violent
creed, with their goal nothing less
than complete independence for the
