Words to Francis Joseph: ...found thee clinging unto the Branch and heedless of the Root

Dear friends,

In the Aqdas, there're these words to Francis Joseph, "We have been with thee at all times, and found thee clinging unto the Branch and heedless of the Root." What do "Branch" and "Root" refer to?

Thanks.

Day of the Covenant

Why did the Master gave November 26, 181 days after the ascension of Bahá'u'lláh, as the Day of the Covenant? Why it was November 26?

Thanks.

It's said:" The names of the months in the Bahá'í ( Badí) calendar were given by the Báb, who drew them from the nineteen names of God invoked in a prayer said during the month of fasting in Shí'ih Islam." If this be true, how to understand the meaning of the name of "Questions"?...

The meaning of "We" in the writings of Baha'u'llah

I heard a friend said taht, 'Abdu'Baha had mentioned that when Baha'u'llah says "We", He means all the Manifestations of God. Yet some understand that "We" implies the majesty of a King, that is God.
Which is correct? And, did 'Abdu'Baha say that?
Thanks.
