Gandhi advocates manual as well as intellectual education. Fred E. Campbell was a young boy from Kansas City who had learned in church that Gandhi was "the foremost example of Christ today" and wished to learn his motives. The present postcard continues their correspondence in which Campbell had evidently described his school. Gandhi responds using a secretary as his own handwriting is difficult to read: " I am glad to receive your letter and a description of your school ... I observe from the curriculum you have sent me that there is nothing in it that provides any manual training. My idea of good education is that there should be, with the training of the head, that of the hand and the heart side by side. What do you do for the latter two? That provides you with matter for your next letter."
