Those contacted included Harry Kenmore, to whom a telegram was sent on 4 October, informing him to come and stay at Meherazad. It read: “Arrive Meherazad 1st November morning for one week stay. Come as mandali, live as mandali in my love. Cable confirmation.”
According to Baba’s instruction, Eruch also wrote Kenmore that Baba did not want him to come as a doctor equipped with treatment paraphernalia, nor did he wish him to bring his Polaroid camera, movie camera or otherwise, nor the contour chair, nor any other “surprises” for Baba’s personal comfort. Baba instructed that if anyone should ask why Kenmore had been called, “Tell him or her that you have been called for your Pop’s personal work.”
