1931-11-15 great duty towards the Cause and then society

USBN #71 - February 1933 - pp. 2

"The friends have a great duty, first towards the Cause and then towards

society at large. Baha'u'llah has come to the world with a divine Message and

devoted all His life and withstood all forms of persecution in the hope of

establishing it firmly. We are now the trustees of that Mission. It is for us to

bring that task begun by Baha'u'llah to a final consummation. Should we fail, we

have been untrue to our Lord and also remained deaf to the cry of humanity seeking

salvation." - (To Miss Elsa Nordquist, Seattle, Washington, through Ruhi Afnan,

Haifa, November 15, 1931).
