As you know, Sri Koduri Krishnarao was a staunch and steadfast lover of beloved Baba and he was the originator of Mehersthan which he constructed out of his love for Him and to perpetuate Baba's Name in Andhra. He also by himself met with the expenses of publishing Telegu- English monthly Journal "Avatar Meher". His sudden death has taken away from our midst a figure that was so ardent and true to the core in furthering the Divine Cause of Avatar Meher Baba in his part of Andhra Pradesh.
Beloved Baba wishes that you publish the matter as per enclosed copies of telegrams and this my letter.
