Abstract/Notes: In this letter from Gandhi, which appears to rehash some of the same content as he previously wrote to Prabhavati about on April 30, he mentions a visit from Jayaprakash and Patwardhan. Gandhi indicates that Jayaprakash spoke to him about how he though Prabhavati 'should undergo Montessori training for three months at Kashi'. Gandhi continues on to say, 'there can be no harm in your learning the Montessori method, though I don't fancy it. You should, however, follow [Jayaprakash's] wish and train yourself in the Montessori method'.
