1932-11-11 politics and letters to Guardian
USBN #71 - February 1933 - pp. 2
"Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated
October 24, 1932, regarding elections in the United States.
"The Guardian has written the National Assembly in detail and given them the
principle upon which he would like to see them act. He has asked them to advise
the friends accordingly and also to expound the principle so as to apply to the
local conditions in America.
"To facilitate matters and avoid misunderstandings he prefers to refer you
and the individual friends to them (the National Assembly). He is sure that you
will obtain full satisfaction by putting the question to them. The purpose of the
Guardian in this is not to avoid the issue but only to facilitate matters and
eliminate misunderstandings. In all such matters the friends should first approach
the Local, then the National Assembly and only in case they can obtain no
satisfaction should they approach the Guardian on these matters. This way many
difficulties will be avoided." - (To Mrs. Corinne True, Wilmette, Illinois,
through Ruhi Afnan, Haifa, November 11, 1932).
