Her Eternal Crown: Queen Marie of Romania and the Baha’i Faith, Della L Marcus, pp95-6
He has with your approval sent a cable of condolence to Queen Marie - the following answer has been received: ‘Grateful thanks to you and all yours with whom I feel spiritually so closely in touch.
He trusts that your next visit to her will serve to stimulate her to further action in a manner that will fulfil the hopes that the Bahà’is cherish for her future work in the Cause. You will, he feels sure, assure her of our Guardian’s deep sympathy and love as well as his earnest prayers for her welfare and success in facing the responsibilities of her high position . . ,
I trust you will do all you can to stimulate the ardour and faith of the Queen and infuse in her a desire to lend a helping hand to the sufferers in Persia. Only last week a fresh case of persecution in the town of Kirmán has been reported to me, and the same indifference, neglect has been shown by the authorities. The hope of our downtrodden brethren in Persia lies in the action that the free and devoted servants of the Cause in the West can take on their behalf and I pray that you will continue in your unique mission of drawing the attention of those who are in authority to the incredible atrocities so frequently perpetrated in Persia.
