I share your sorrow in the loss, and participate in your rejoicings for
the triumph of beloved Father Dunn. The magnificent career of this
veteran warrior of the Faith of Bahá'u'lláh reflects the purest luster of the
world historic mission conferred upon American community by `Abdu'l-Bahá.
To the three heroines whose dust reposes in the heart of Persia, in
the Pacific Islands and southern extremity of the American continent, a
fourth witness in far-off Australasia is now added, attesting the first vital
sparks of far-flung spiritual dominion American believers have been
commissioned to establish. I am moved to congratulate them for the resplendent
successes of the Plan destined to encircle the entire globe. Advise hold
National Memorial Gathering in Mashriqu'l-Adhkár befitting the rank of
Australia's spiritual conqueror.
