My dear Papa,

I received your moneyorder for Rs. 1600/- today. Papa I don’t want to press you with my ever-increasing demand of money. The hostel fee has been increasing frequently. Mess charges too have been enhanced. I know how with great difficulty you are meeting my expenses. But I am also helpless. Believe me I don’t ever spend a single rupee more than what is needed absolutely.

Papa I need Rs. 1000/- more even to cope with my normal expenses. I feel I am asking you for tightening your belt still further, but take his amount as a kind of investment. The moment I achieve my goal, I shall provide you with all the comforts that I can provide you with. Hope you will not mind my request.

Your loving son,
