Dear Bahai Sister,

Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated July 14th, 1933 and to thank you most warmly for the interesting news you have given him about the progress of the Cause in your community. He sincerely hopes that the arrival of your devoted and capable sister, Miss Louise Drake Wright, will add further to the wonderful activities of the friends in Brookline and that they will be given a fresh impetus to carry out their sacred obligations to the Cause.

The Guardian has greatly appreciated the glorious work done by your sister in Holland. Despite the most unfavorable circumstances in which she had to work, she has, nevertheless, been able to awaken the interest of important scholars in the teachings of the Faith. Her work if continued and consolidated by souls as able and as devoted as herself, will undoubtedly yield great fruits.

In closing please extend the loving greetings of the Guardian to each and every member of your community.

With his deepest Bahai love and best wishes,

Yours in His Service,

H. Rabbani.
