My dear fellow-worker:
May this projected union prove happy, enduring and fruitful. I will supplicate on your behalf at the holy Shrines that your heart's desire may erelong be fulfilled, that your life in future may stand as a living testimony to the harmony and fellowship which the Faith of Bahà’u’llàh has established between the East and the West.
[ltr of 28 May 1926, to Marion Carpenter, on hearing of her engagement to Ali Yazdi.]
