Looking back in Wonder, Phillip Hainsworth, p28
Dear Bahá’í Brother,
Your letters dated November 15th 1944 and May 30th 1945 have been received, and the Guardian has instructed me to answer them on his behalf. He answered your first letter shortly after receiving it; the reply must have not reached you, unfortunately. The clippings you sent, etc., were of interest to him, and he was delighted to see you had been so active in teaching the Cause.
In East Africa we have no addresses of believers, but in the Belgian Congo there is a Bahà’i family, a Persian married to a Belgian woman. Their address is: Mr Vahdat, Agronome Colonie, Kabongo, Province of Elizabethville, in case you have an opportunity to get in touch with them.
The Guardian hopes that at a not distant future date you will again be able to serve the Cause in England. Young and eager workers are much needed to get the work started on a larger scale and reach more of the public.
No doubt you will be able to teach wherever you are, and you may be sure his prayers will be offered on your behalf and for the success of your devoted efforts.
With warm Bahá’í greetings, R. Rabbání.
Assuring you of my special and fervent prayers for your welfare, your spiritual advancement, the success of your efforts in the service of our beloved Faith, and the realisation of every hope you cherish for its extension and promotion.
Your true brother, Shoghi.
