The Sixth National Spiritual Assembly of the
Bahá'ís of North East Asia, 1962/1963. It was the last assembly on which Hand
of the Cause Miss Agnes Alexander served. The national convention in 1963 was
held at the end of May instead of Ridvan, because of the International
Convention in the Holy Land which took place during Ridvan. Miss Alexander was
elected to the national spiritual assembly in 1963, but she immediately
resigned, as the Hands of the Cause had decided in May 1963 to devote all their
efforts to teaching and protection during that important period of the
expansion of the Faith.
