Rita van Bleyswijk Sombeek, 13 March 1953
Dear Bahà’i Sister:
Your letter of June 17, 1952, has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
Your indefatigable services in so many fields are deeply appreciated by him.
We can only hope that the Queen of Holland will gradually realize the greatness of our Faith, and will bend her energies toward its propagation.
The Guardian assures you of his loving prayers on your behalf.
With warm Bahà’i greetings, R. Rabbání
May the Beloved bless, guide and sustain you in your meritorious services to His Faith. Your true brother; Shoghi
