A report from the American Baptist Telugu Mission, with much on current conditions in India; the mission's report includes harsh words for the 1922 non-cooperation campaign: "The forces of lawlessness and anarchy set in motion by the preaching of Gandhi and his followers were steadily gaining strength and getting out of hand. . . . On the 10th of March, 1922 Gandhi, the 'Dictator', was arrested at Ahmedabad and after a swift trial was sentenced to six years imprisonment.
