Jan. 24, 1929
Dear Laura Khanum,
I thank you for the beautiful & touching poem you sent me as well as for the two previous letters you wrote me in connexion with the passing of our dear Hippolyte.
I have shared their contents with the family who deeply sympathize with you in your sorrow & loneliness.
I very much desire to have a good portrait of my departed friend to keep in my study wherein we have spent delightful hours conversing & collaborating with regard to the affairs of the Cause. With your consent I should very much like to forward a copy to America for publication in the next issue of the Bahá'í World. I am sending to your address a copy of the one recently published & would welcome any comment you wish to make.
Wishing you the best of health, & success in your work.
Believe me, dear Laura Khanum,
