Dear Bahá'í Friends:
The beloved Guardian has instructed me to write you on his behalf, to request that the information relating to Germany and Austria and their activities, contained in the booklet "The Bahá'í Faith", `Information Statistical and Comparative', be brought up to date as of May 1, 1952, and sent to him here by the first possible air mail post.
One of the features of the Holy Year will be the re-issuance of this important book; inasmuch as the Holy Year is fast approaching, the Guardian wishes information as quickly as possible.
Briefly, the information which your NSA is to provide, brought up to date of May 1, 1952, is as follows:
Incorporated Local Spiritual Assemblies in Germany
and Austria, showing each country with its Local
Bahá'í Centers in Germany and Austria, showing if
possible the division between Local Spiritual
Assemblies, Groups and Isolated Believers.
Any information not immediately available, should be handled by telegraph, but such information as is available should not be delayed for any one or two delinquents. You can appreciate that if the booklet is to be published early in the Holy Year, the information should reach the Guardian at a very early date.
The Guardian sends his loving greetings to the National Assembly and its devoted members....
