1931-01-30 re upcoming Baha’i World volume
USBN #48 - February 1931 - page 8-9
to the BW Editorial Secretary
My Dear Mr. Windust:
I am directed by the Guardian to thank you for your letter of January 8th
with enclosures, all of which he has read with much interest.
In view of the importance which, as you are well aware, Shoghi Effendi
attaches to "The Baha'i World publications, he wishes me to express his grateful
and profound appreciation at every available opportunity for the painstaking
efforts you lavish upon its publication.
He is already looking forward to a still more instructive and attractive
production this year and he patiently awaits the Manuscript next April. You can
collect on the other side of the Atlantic all the material you want. He will sift
and decide upon them here, after having your recommendation.
With the assurance of his affection and prayers for you and your daughters,
and with his sincere trust in the materialization of your visit to Haifa,
My dear and precious co-worker:
I feel strongly that the forthcoming issue of "The Baha'i World , to which
you are so devotedly attached, will arouse keen and widespread interest. I eagerly
await the Manuscript by the end of April. I would like to urge that the original
colors of the Manuscript which has been sent to you for reproduction should be
distinctly and faithfully reproduced, inasmuch as the colored reproduction of the
Master's photograph on the frontispiece of Vol. II is slightly different and
inferior in shade as compared with the original. May the Beloved guide you,
sustain you, and fortify you in your historic task.
Your affectionate brother,
January 30, 1930.
