Catalogue Note

TWO LETTERS BY GANDHI AFFIRMING HIS CONTINUED LOVE OF THE BOSE FAMILY, and recalling visits to their home at 1 Woodburn Park, Calcutta. Bivabati Bose was the wife of Sarat Chandra Bose, and these consoling letters were written when her husband was imprisoned under the Defence of India Rules. The increasingly militant Bose brothers had fallen out with Gandhi in 1939, when Subhas Chandra Bose resigned the presidency of the INC and then announced the formation of the radical left-wing Forward Bloc. Gandhi, however, looks beyond these major political disagreements and back at a long and deep friendship with the Bose family.
