The Maxwells of Montreal Vol II, Violette Nakhjavani, p406
April 11th, 1948
To Whom it may Concern:
This is to introduce Mr. W. S. Maxwell, F.R.I.B.A., who is a member of the Bahá’í Community and has been residing in Haifa with me since 1940. He is my father-in-law and is proceeding to Italy in connection with work to be carried out on one of our Bahá’í Shrines on Mt. Carmel.
He is accompanied by Mr. Benjamin Weeden, a Bahá’í from the United States of America, who is likewise occupied here in Haifa in serving the Bahá’í Faith at its World Centre. Mr. Weeden is proceeding to Italy to assist Mr. Maxwell in his work there.
I, as Head of the Bahá’í Faith, would appreciate every assistance being rendered to these two gentlemen in discharging their tasks and in facilitating their journey and safe transit through Palestine territory.
Shoghi Rabbani, Head of the Bahá’í Faith.
