Her Eternal Crown : Queen Marie of Romania and the Baha'i Faith by Della L. Marcus, p56

.......... Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letters dated January 10, March 29 and 8, April 12 and 6, a letter which was not dated, and a postcard. I consider this a great pleasure because I thereby obtain a chance of reading your letters and informing myself of the splendid work you are doing in Eastern Europe.

.......... As Europe, especially the Eastern section, has suffered a great deal from the last war the people are quite ready and anxious to hear about peace...

Shoghi Effendi's handwritten addition to this letter reads:

.......... I have read your glowing reports with thankfulness and pride and I continue--nay redouble--my prayers for you that your heart's desire may ere long be fulfilled. I will also remember those with whom you have recently come in contact and trust that Europe may in the not distant future turn ablaze as a result of your unique, memorable and unprecedented services. You have truly endeared yourself to all the Baha'i world and your name whether in the East or in the West evokes the deepest sentiments of admiration, praise and gratitude...

.......... I am thrilled by your account about the Queen!!!
