Priya Nath discovered quite suddenly that Alfred Hicky had been over-charging them and was not allowing the books to be delivered to them from the press, saying that the press would destroy the books. Priya Nath decided to go down to the press and make the payment to the press there and then, and bring home the books himself, rather than wait for Alfred Hicky to do so.
Shri Nathji and Bholu, the son of Shri G.K. Bahl, accompanied Priya Nath in the car and the three of them went down to the press, paid the bill, and brought the books home. There had always been the danger of a confrontation in case Hicky showed up there and sought to prevent the books from being taken. But Priya Nath’s swift action saved the situation.
It was the one and only time that Shri Nathji was seen in such a touch and go situation– a strange kind of game, running home with one’s own goods, after making full payment for them! Priya Nath sent a telegram to Hicky to come and settle the matter, but the man realised he had been caught, and disappeared, never to be seen again.
