Her Eternal Crown: Queen Marie of Romania and the Baha’i Faith, Della L Marcus, pp263-4
18 February 1936
Her Majesty Queen Marie of Romania
Miss Root has transmitted to me the original copy of the appreciation penned by Your Majesty for the forthcoming issue of ‘The Bahá’í World’. I am deeply touched, and feel truly grateful for this further evidence of Your Majesty’s sustained interest in and admiration for the Bahà’i Teachings.
Bahà’i Communities the world over will ever recall, with feelings of pride and gratitude, these beautiful, impressive and historic testimonies from the pen of Your Majesty - testimonies that will no doubt greatly inspire and hearten them in their continued labours for the spread of the Cause of Bahá’u’lláh.
I am so pleased and encouraged to learn that Your Majesty has derived much benefit from the reading of the ‘Gleanings’, and I feel that my efforts in translating these extracts have been fully rewarded.
I am presenting to Your Majesty through the kindness of Mrs McNeill the latest photograph recently received from America
showing the progress in the construction of the Bahà’i House of Worship in Wilmette.
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh ever bless and sustain Your Majesty in the noble support you are extending to His Cause.
With deepest affection and gratitude,
