To the Youth who were present in Aachen on May 19, 1957.
He was very happy to see that so many of the Bahá'í Youth had gathered together to study the Teachings, and hopes such meetings will be held often throughout Germany.
The believers, especially the young ones, should always remember that the first thing the non-Baha'is are going to notice in us is our character; therefore, the highest standard of moral conduct and courtesy should be shown forth by the youth, in order to attract the hearts of other people, and, through arousing their admiration, create in them a desire to know more about our beloved Faith, and eventually to arise to serve it.
He will pray for you all, that you may be successful in your labours, to give the Glad Tidings of Bahá'u'lláh to the young people....
In the Guardian's own handwriting:
May the Almighty bless your efforts, guide and sustain you, and aid you to win great victories in the service of His Faith,
Your true brother,
