Cablegram from Shoghi Effendi
Present controversy agitating American believers if unchecked will through
its inevitable worldwide repercussions inflict irreparable injury (upon) Cause
(of) Baha'u'llah. Nothing short (of the) following measures can avert threatening
danger: retension (of) Lunt's membership, and inflexible resolve by whomsoever
directly or remotely concerned (to) refrain from slightest criticism, expressed or
implied, that must necessarily impair (the) undivided authority (of the)
institution (of the) National Assembly. Even barest reference to issues involved
should be instantly dropped (and) forgotten. Concentrate precious energies (upon)
uninterrupted prosecution (of) divinely appointed enterprise. Appeal entire
community (to) heed (my) passionate entreaty (and) grave warning.
August 20, 1934.
