(Champaklal hands Satprem the French and English texts of the Christmas message so Mother can put it in her own handwriting.)
(Satprem.:) You've put:
We want to show to the world that man can become a true servitor of the Divine.
Who will collaborate in all sincerity?
(Champaklal, in English:) Mother, shall I give you paper? Mother will write now? To send to Press?
(Satprem:) Is it necessary?
But I can't write....
(Champaklal is upset)
...I'd better write it.
(Mother spends twenty minutes copying the message by hand, then she holds out her hands to Satprem and plunges in)
