I need not try and convey to you in words how the Guardian has deplored, and suffered over, all the tragic happenings of the last few years! He was particularly sorry to hear such a dear Bahá'í as Paul Kohler, of Dresden, had died, as well as his wife and children. We can only be grateful that so many of the German friends have survived such terrible years!
He is very anxious to have the German Bahá'ís resume their activities on a larger scale than ever before--particularly as they are now free for the first time in so many years. He fully realizes how great your problems are, and that you are still suffering from many shortages and restrictions; but knowing you all--and what our beloved Master foresaw your future would be--the Guardian is confident the Faith will spread as never before in Germany, and that the believers of that country will aid in establishing the institutions of Bahá'u'lláh all over Europe.
