Gandhi writes from Yeravda Prison in Poona, India in 1933 in apparent response to Harry Deutch, of the Bronx.
Yeravda Central Prison
12th January, 1933
My whole heart goes out to you. When the conviction goes deeper than the intellect, you will brave all dangers and risks and live the true life, and you will at once find that it is its own reward. Dissatisfaction will give place to full satisfaction, because it will not depend upon external circumstances. An ever-flowing well will be opened out in your own heart from which you will draw new joy and new satisfaction from day to day.
[signed] MK Gandhi
