THE MEMORIAL IN HONOR OF MARTHA L. ROOT
"With regard to the Memorial which the N.S.A. is proposing to erect in honor of our beloved Martha, the Guardian is hopeful that the fund which is now being raised for that purpose will receive the full support of the believers, and that the donations which will be sent in will be sufficient to enable your Assembly to erect a befitting monument in memory of our departed sister. The friends should be impressed with the importance and significance of this undertaking, and should seize this opportunity of paying their last tribute to so outstanding and indeed matchless a pioneer and servant of the Cause in the West."
-SHOGHI EFFENDI, through his Secretary, to Roy C. Wilhelm, Treasurer.
