My dear Roy [Wilhelm]
Many thanks /or your card of Jan. 12th . . . . Shoghi Effendi and the rest of us are delighted as to the work that is being accomplished in America. This failure of material civilization should bring man near to spiritual matters. Working for material comfort and prosperity is becoming so useless and hopeless that we may well turn our attention more to God and the future life. The Temple also seem. to be attracting so much attention and arousing so much interest in the teachings. We do hope that the friends are availing themselves of these opportunities and are really active in spreading the Message.
Shoghi Effendi and the rest of the family are well and send you their loving greetings.
Yours ever sincerely.
