1929-11-01 re his birthday anniversary
USBN #29 - January 1929 - page 2
"My dear and valued co-worker: I wish to add a few words in person regarding
the commemoration of my birthday anniversary. I would earnestly request all
believers and Assemblies not to observe, under any circumstances, whether
officially or privately, my birthday anniversary. I strongly feel that only
anniversaries in connection with the life of the Bab, Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha
should be celebrated by the believers. It will, I am sure, prove conducive to my
own spiritual growth and happiness, and would be in the best interests of our
beloved Faith. I trust that you will acquaint all the believers with this
insistent request of mine and I feel sure that they will all joyfully respond.
Your true brother,Shoghi."
