USBN #120 Nov 1938, p3
I heartily welcome and am deeply touched by the assurances conveyed in your last communication, and am particularly rejoiced to learn of the steps already taken by your Assembly to insure the uninterrupted progress of the ornamentation work on the Temple. The determination and zeal which you have so clearly evinced in taking these initial steps augur well for the continued expansion and ultimate fruition of the two-fold enterprise you have undertaken to accomplish. Individual believers and local Assemblies will assuredly be greatly heartened and reinvigorated by the splendid initiative that has marked the beginning of your year's stewardship in the service of this glorious Cause. The high expectations we all cherish will no doubt be fulfilled.
