Abstract Statements on displays of affection (hugging and kissing) between members of the opposite sex. Also questions on assembly infallibility, and whether one with a minority opinion should vote against his conscience.
Notes This file contains four parts: (1) a 1912 one-page Pilgrim's Note from Ann Boylan; (2) a 1947 letter from John B. Cornell (see John Cornell: in Memoriam) to the Guardian which, among other topics, quoted three lines from this Pilgrim's Note; (3) the 1947 response written by "R. Rabbani" (which I presume is Ruhiyyih (Mary Maxwell) Rabbani, but I'm not positive) on behalf of the Guardian to John B. Cornell; (4) a 1974 letter from the Universal House of Justice which quoted the Guardian's letter to Cornell. Material shared by and posted with permission from Cornell.
