2nd Benelux Conference, Overschie, 22 April 1953
Dear Bahàï Friends,
Your letter of April 6th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was indeed happy to learn of the love and unity which existed among those present at that important Conference, and that you are all completely resolved to fulfil, in their entirety, the tasks allotted to you during this historic World Crusade.
The Guardian was particularly happy that Dr. Miihlschlegel could be present, and that his contribution to the conference was so helpful; also that Mrs. van Sombeek added so much to the spirit of the gathering by her account of her visit to Haifa, and of the Kampala Conference.
He was also pleased that a number of the German friends could attend.
The Guardian assures you all of his loving prayers for you in the fulfilment of your noble tasks, that all your labours may be abundantly blessed.
With warm Bahà’i love, R. Rabbání
May the Almighty bless, guide and sustain you, reward you for your splendid services, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to lend a great impetus to the onward march of His Faith. Your true brother, Shoghi
