The Maxwells of Montreal Vol II, Violette Nakhjavani, p298-9
Shoghi Effendi was immensely pleased with the report you sent in your letter to me of the meeting in New York. He wishes me to tell you that you are working in the forefront and as a brave soldier of the Cause. In fact he said it might be the best letter you ever had written! He was so heartened and pleased by it . . .
I send you my deepest love, ever your own loving daughter,
Dear & prized co-worker:
I feel proud of the initial success that has signalized the resumption of your activities in America. I was deeply moved by your graphic account of the meeting & I hastened to cable you & urge you to persevere. Do take good care of your precious health & be assured that your task is by no means completed. Persevere & be confident. You are valiantly promoting, defending and consolidating the manifold interests of the Faith & for so meritorious a work for which you are highly qualified & newly & fittingly equipped you should feel grateful & happy. You are often in my thoughts & prayers I assure you. Affectionately & gratefully
