Once Baba wrote to Delia to arrange something very difficult. Delia sent this telegram":I will try." Baba cabled back immediately, "Leave it." Delia then realized that Baba was dissatisfied and cabled: "I will do my best."
Baba was pleased and answered, "Go ahead. I will help you." Though very few words were exchanged in these telegrams, Delia found them to contain a valuable lesson, and remembered it for the rest of her life.
