Office of Cabinet Delegation, The Viceroy’s House, New Delhi
June 25. 46
Congress today turned down the plan for interim Govt but accepted a long-term plan for Constitution Making.
The result though nt as good as at one time seemed possible is a considerable achievement for which I am profoundly thankful.
Our present idea is to start from here on Friday & if tht is adhered to we should be in London on Monday Afternoon July 1. In tht case this will probably be the last letter tht I shall write to you before I start.
If it all works out as I have said, my joy at the prospect of seeing you again is overwhelming.
Kisses & love
From your very own
