Keith's precious life offered up in sacrifice to beloved Cause in
Bahá'u'lláh's native land. On Persian soil, for Persia's sake, she
encountered, challenged and fought the forces of darkness with high
distinction, indomitable will, unswerving, exemplary loyalty. The mass of her
helpless Persian brethren mourns the sudden loss of their valiant emancipator.
American believers grateful and proud of the memory of their first and
distinguished martyr. Sorrow stricken, I lament my earthly separation from an
invaluable collaborator, an unfailing counselor, an esteemed and faithful
friend. I urge the Local Assemblies befittingly to organize memorial
gatherings in memory of one whose international services entitled her to an
eminent rank among the Hands of the Cause of Bahá'u'lláh.
