To "Dorothy", probably his disciple Dorothy Hogg: "I have your letter as also copies of the articles. They were quite serviceable. I suppose you are keeping yourself in touch with Agatha. Therefore I do not need to say much".

Hogg, a quaker from Birmingham, was secretary to the English pacifist Muriel Lester, whose hospitality the Mahatma had enjoyed during his London visit in 1931. Hogg first met Gandhi on a visit to India in 1934, accompanying Lester. In 1946 she published the book "The moral challenge of Gandhi", and, as late as 1981, a biography of Gandhi, "Memories for Tomorrow". The "Agatha" here mentioned is the English pacifist Agatha Harrison (1885-1954), another close associate of Gandhi in the 1930s and 1940s.
