Mudie was Governor of Sind before Partition and chose to leave for Lahore on 7 August, the day when Mr Jinnah landed in Karachi, creating an unnecessary controversy. Mr Jinnah's stay in Lahore (26 October - 1 December) was not very pleasant either. He spent nearly three weeks in bed due to illness. His military secretary Col Birnie noted in his diary that Jinnah had left looking sixty and returned five weeks later looking over eighty. His temporary life was drawing to an end.
