Shirin Boman, Tahirih K Vajdi, pp23-24
“It is very sad to think that the dear Hand of the Cause, Mrs. Baker, whom you wrote about in your letter, so earnestly pleading with the Guardian that she made another trip to India, has been killed. Her place is indeed empty in the Bahá’í world; and she will be greatly missed, not only because of her lovable character, which won the hearts of all who knew her, but because of the great services she was capable of rendering the Faith, services so much needed in these historic years of the Ten Year World Crusade.
“He urges you to follow in the footsteps of this noble soul, and to do all you can on your part, to attract the Hindu element to the Faith. This is of the utmost importance for the progress of the Cause in India. ”
[on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to Shirin Boman, 24 Jan 1954]
