  <mods:abstract>This letter announces the death of Chandy C. Abraham, the principal of the YMCA College of Physical Education in India. It was written by Dr. S. D. Chopde, the school’s new principal, on March 1, 1956, and was likely sent to faculty and alumni. The first page describes the circumstances of his unexpected death in light of his seemingly good health, and the second page provides biographical information. The final two pages describe his final days and funeral arrangements.</mods:abstract>
