Dear Co-worker: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to the Benelux countries , pp53-4
Melanie Humbert, 14 April 1947
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letters dated February 16th and March 10th, with other enclosures, were received, and Shoghi Effendi has instructed me to answer you on his behalf. He is indeed (as you so clearly see) very over-worked with his mail; but he does not want your kind letter to go unanswered.
It is wonderful to see, at last, the intellectuals turning to the problems of the world and seeking to solve them. Side by side with this non-Bahá’í work, so close to many of Baha’u’lláhs teachings, we believers must carry on our purely Bahà’i work, which only we can do, and which has such tremendous implications for the future of humanity in every sphere.
Your interest in our glorious Faith, in its many aspects, pleases him greatly, and he urges you to teach the Cause as much as possible, and help to find new ways of reaching the public and different elements in it.
He read your letters to the N.S.A. and Contacts Committee, and is glad to see the evidences of your devotion to the Cause.
You may be sure he will pray for the success of your labours in its service.
With Bahà’i greetings, R. Rabbání
May the Beloved bless, guide and sustain you, and enable you to promote effectively the best interests of His Faith, and fulfil your hearts desire in its service. Your true brother, Shoghi
