Bahá'ís of Esslingen. Dear Bahá'í Friends:
Your loving letter of April 5th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has asked me to acknowledge it on his behalf.
He is delighted to learn of the activity of the friends in Esslingen, and of their unity and devotion.
The visit of `Abdu'l-Bahá to Esslingen on April 4, 1913, was a historic occasion, and the friends certainly are correct in holding a memorial meeting each year.
Now that the Ten-Year World Crusade has been launched, the Guardian sincerely hopes that all of the friends in Germany will treble their efforts, and arise to accomplish the great goals which the German Bahá'ís have set themselves to achieve.
You may be sure the Guardian will pray for you at the holy Shrines. He sends his warm love to each and every one of you....
In the Guardian's own handwriting:
May the Almighty bless, guide and sustain you, and aid you to promote the vital interests of His Faith,
Your true brother,
