The Maxwells of Montreal Vol II, Violette Nakhjavani, p174
Your messages of condolence & sympathy dated July 22nd and 28th, 1932 were received and were greatly appreciated by the Guardian. His sorrow-laden heart was much relieved at the thought that you are so kindly sharing his grief, and the news of your unceasing efforts towards a greater spread of the Cause brightened his hopes for the future of your work . . .
In your last communication you had enclosed a letter to you by Lily Armstrong which indicated how eager this devoted woman is to spread the teachings of the Faith. Shoghi Effendi trusts that through your devotion, care and wisdom she will soon embrace the Cause and will be able to,render it as many services as she can. In his moments of meditation & prayer he will always remember her & ask the Almighty to strengthen her faith, deepen her spiritual insight & open before her new fields of service.
Dear & valued sister:
I greatly prize your message as it comes from one whose past, & particularly her present, services have to a great extent served to cheer the heart of Khánum, in the closing days of her earthly life. This thought should alleviate your sorrow & impart fresh strength to your heart in the many services you are so nobly energetically rendering to the Cause of God. I will continue to pray for you that the Beloved may sustain, bless & guide your high endeavours.
Your true brother,
