USBN #154 July 1942 p3
" I wish to add a few words to what has been written on my behalf and stress afresh the vital importance of increasing by every means in our power the number of pioneers who for however short a period are able to help in promoting the establishment of the Faith in South America . The utmost encouragement, moral and material, should be extended to those heroic workers who are willing in these days of uncertainty and turmoil to travel to or settle in those regions. You will, I am sure, with your co-workers, strain every nerve to stimulate the friends and facilitate their journey and reinforce their endeavors in such a vital sphere of Baha'i activity."
to Mrs. S. W. French, Secretary of the Inter-America Committee, November 21, 1941.
