SATYAGRAHA CAMP,
NADIAD,

June 6 [1918]

TO
THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF

KAIRA DISTRICT

The struggle that the people of the district of Kaira entered
upon on the 22nd of March last, has come to an end. The people took
the following vow on that day.3
The meaning of this vow is that the Government suspending
collection of the revenue from the poor, the well-to-do should pay the
assessment due from them. The Mamlatdar of Nadiad at Uttersanda,
on the 3rd of June issued such orders, whereupon the people of
Uttersanda, who could afford, were advised to pay up. Payments have
already commenced there.
On the foregoing order having been passed at Uttarsanda a letter
was addressed to the Collector4

stating that if orders like the one in
Uttarsanda were passed everywhere the struggle would come to an
end, and it would be possible to inform His Excellency the Governor
on the 10th instant—the day of the sitting of the Provincial War
Conference—that the domestic difference in Kaira was settled. The
Collector has replied to the effect that the order like the one in
Uttarsanda is applicable to the whole district. Thus the people’s prayer
has at last been granted. The Collector has also stated in reply to a
query about chothai orders that the orders will not be enforced
