Shoghi Effendi has been very glad to receive your letter of August and to learn of the visit of Dr. Yunis Khán and Mr. Fred. Kline. He is also very pleased to know that you have already chosen a plot of land for a Bahá'í home.
The Guardian has always wished to see Esslingen a great and flourishing Bahá'í center, just as our beloved Master always hoped that it may become. Of course you realize that perseverance, enthusiasm and a firm faith in the ultimate success of our Cause is necessary, and when we are assisted by the Almighty there can be no doubt that all our endeavours will be crowned with success.
Assuring you one and all of Shoghi Effendi's warm regards and of his prayers for you,
In the Guardian's own handwriting:
With the assurance of my deep affection and fervent prayers at the holy Shrines for you,
Your true brother,
