In accordance with the Guardian's purpose and instructions, the National Assembly has requested Mr. George Spendlove, a believer exceptionally qualified by expert knowledge and experience, to undertake the responsible task of arranging for the sale of this rug. Its value has been established at the sum of $20,000, at which figure offers will be considered whether from Baha'is or non-Baha'is, but no offer from a non-Baha'i will be accepted until those interested among the believers have been given full opportunity to acquire the rug for the Cause.
