October 16, 1974
My Dear Puranjan, Bhaja Hari, Jananananda, Rohininandan, Partha das, Maha Vishnu, Nara Haridas, Patit Uddharanadas, and Mukundadas:
Please accept my blessings. I am in due receipt of your letter dated October 14, 1974 hand delivered by Puranjana das: Regarding the intended election, I have no preference for anyone. Whomever gets the majority election, he has my vote.
I hope this meets you all well.
Your ever well wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
