MESSAGE TO HIS COUNTRYMEN.

Have faith in Him and glory and victory shall be ours.

The Punjab wrong, Khilafat treachery and Chirala Perala tragedy are but the Avarohans, the descending ones, in the even song of Swaraj whose Arohanas, the ascending ones, are the establishment of Swaraj in India and also in England, which awaits you in your on-coming struggle. I am destined to deny myself the sharing of your pangs in suffering and sacrifice: but may yet share your joy when it is settled and becomes the Rasa of Universal love. I embrace you all and exit to my cell.

DUGGIRALA GOPALAKRISHNAYA.
