Martha Root: Lioness at the Threshold, M. R. Garis, p205
My dearest Bahà’i sister:—
Your letters laden with the perfume of love & service revive & invigorate our souls & cheer our spirits. We thirst for more. You are always guided, inspired & sustained by the spirit of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Go forth therefore confident & unafraid proclaiming far & wide the Divine Message of Bahá’u’lláh. You have my prayers & you may ever rely upon my boundless affection, my high esteem, my wholehearted & undiminished support.
1924-02-13 to Martha Root (one of first letters to Martha)
