list of prescribed text books. By selecting this book our esteemed D. P. I. Hon'ble M. Hallward has not only favoured the author but has also done a great good to our poor mother language Assamese in as much as thus encouraging our gifted poet to a certain extent will lead to the publication of some other valuable works from his able hands-thus enriching our poor Assamese library. We respectfully draw the attention of our worthy D. P. I. and the other educational authorities in this regard and earnestly beseech that it may not again be neglected but introduced permanently in the first three classes of the High Schools and in the College classes in years to come."

My dear Hazarika,
Many thanks for your letter of the 2nd ult. and the copy of your beautiful book “Jnana-Malini” which you kindly sent me. The book has got only its just tribute from the public and the press. As for myself I told you already how charmed I felt at the first sight of the book many years ago. In reading it again now, I could not put it aside without finishing it and enjoyed the same pleasure over again. I feel that there is still more of it to be enjoyed and re-read.
Thanking you again.
