USBN #139 October1940, p2

" The stone casting representing the window head of the main story ornamentation of the Temple which you had shipped on board the American Export Liner 'Excalibur' was safely received only two days ago, and was found in excellent condition. It has already, at the guardian's direction, been placed at the entrance to the garden adjoining the Shrine of the Bab. The size of the casting, and the intricate and beautiful designs, and the excellent location it has been given, are such as to highly impress all visitors. It makes indeed a most befitting and dignified exhibit, and is bound to awaken considerable interest in the Cause. The Guardian feels most grateful to the N. S. A. for their gift, which constitutes indeed one more tangible proof of the bonds of undying devotion and attachment that so indissolubly unites them with the world-center of the Faith in the Holy Land."

- SHOGHI EFFENDI, through his secretary, to Allen B. McDaniel, Chairman of the National Spiritual Assembly,

April 22, 1940.

Two views of this casting in the garden at Haifa were published in Baha'i News for September, 1940.
