A letter to a friend, congratulating him on his recovery from illness
My Dear Ankur,
I feel relieved to learn from your letter that you have recovered from typhoid. Heartiest congratulations on your recovery.
You have had a long and tiring illness, but have bravely fought against it. It must have been really wearisome to have lain in bed for such a long time. Typhoid is a tedious illness. But thank God, it is all over now.
I am glad to learn that you are beginning to take an interest in life again. As you are still weak, you must take proper care of your health. Don’t exert yourself. Don’t study till you have recouped your health. Be very particular about your diet now. Take simple and light diet and avoid over eating.
Follow the instructions of your doctor. When you pick up some strength, go out for a walk daily. It will do you a lot of good. We have a nice bungalow with a garden attached to it. I, therefore, invite you to spend a few days with us. Change will do you a lot of good and improve your health.
Once again congratulate you and your parents on your recovery from long illness.
With best wishes from
