Looking back in Wonder, Phillip Hainsworth, p55-6

Dear Bahá’í Brother,

Your letter of June 17th was received, and the beloved Guardian was delighted to receive your good news; both of the state of the Cause in England and the acceptance of the Faith by three new people in Egypt.

He hopes that the way will open for you to both enter the pioneer field and also provide for your dear parents. He was very sorry to hear of your father’s condition, and assures you he wifi supplicate for him in the holy shrines, that Bahá’u’lláh may assist him and bless him, and that God’s will for him may be done.

What the Guardian meant by appealing more directly to the masses is that the British Bahà’is must try to acquaint the public with the teachings through public meetings and disseminating literature; this still does not mean they are in a position to launch activities on a scale comparable with what is being done in America: as he told you, their primary consideration at the present time must be to bring people into the Faith, in order to speedily achieve the goals of the Six Year Plan. This has precedence over everything else.

He hopes the Summer School will be a great success, and wishes you well in your devoted efforts to stimulate the friends to take immediate action! You may be sure he will pray for you and your family.

With loving greetings,

Rúhíyyih Rabbání.

May the Beloved guide every step you take in the path of service, bless every effort you exert for the promotion of the Plan, and fulfil every desire you cherish for the advancement of the Faith in your country. Your true brother, Shoghi.
