26. Write a letter to your father to say how the cost of living has gone up with the result that you cannot meet your expenses. Request him therefore, to increase your monthly allowance.
Room No. 16,
Sir Syed Hostel,
My dear father,
I am in receipt of your kind letter and have also received Rs. 300/- remitted by you. I have paid my tuition and other fees and have also cleared up my last month’s dues of the hostel and canteen. I have only Rs. 30/- with me now.
In this connection I may point out that the cost of living here is now so high that it is no longer possible for me to manage with Rs. 300/- that I receive from, you per month. 1 am aware of your difficulties for meeting the educational expenses of all of us and I am, therefore, very cautious in my expenditure. Believe in me father, no sort of economy in these hand days can permit me to manage with Rs. 300/-. Hence I am constrained to request you to send me Rs. 50/- more from the next month.
I am very much attentive to my studies so that the expenditure of your hard earned money may be fully justified.
Please convey my regards to mother and love to others.
