Again, 10 years later, Hiloo, living then in London, writes of her visit to Will and Mary, "I felt the most wonderful sense of peace when I entered your home. I am sure you would understand if I told you that I felt the presence of dearest Baba so much more there than I have felt anywhere else these three years in England . . . I can never quite put into words how happy that made me."

 

On the occasion of Fred Winterfeldt and Dr. Harry Kenmore's flying visit to India, in the same year, Will continued:

 

"Fred and Harry phoned us from London Airport on their way back to New York and their voices came through with very special meaning and winged with Baba's Divine Love as his ambassadors to the West, for all of us are ever millionaires in Baba's love."

 

Is it not clear from the above that throughout their thirty years of devoted service to Beloved Baba, 1932 to 1962, these two loving souls were in constant touch inwardly and outwardly with Baba and his close ones? Baba saw to it that they were kept in touch with all his movements through letters, messages and visitors. Different pens wrote Baba’s letters to them during these years. At one time it was Chanji who was their correspondent in India—at another time it was Margaret Craske or myself—then Donkin took on the correspondence and in later years, Mani, both through the Family Letter and personally, as permitted by Baba. So have they ever been in close touch with Baba who has showered his love and bounty on all, and on Will and Mary, his two dear archangels.

 

I would like to include the story of the Cotton Yarn as written in a letter by Dr. Donkin:

 

c/o Shri Meher Baba
Mahabaleshwar, Satara District

11.6.47

Dear Mary and Will:

 

First a message to Mary. The enclosed skein of cotton yarn is sent to Mary from Baba. Baba tells her to hold it in her hands for a while when she gets it, and thereafter keep it in a safe place and not use it for anything ever.

 

Now as to how it came to be sent to Mary.

 

After a lot of letters from Ayengar's people in Madras, begging Baba to come down there, Baba agreed to go for two days to Madras, give darshan to the Ayengar family, stay at their place at Saidapet, just outside Madras, and give public darshan for two days.
