Looking back in Wonder, Philip Hainsworth, p200-1
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your loving letter of 26 May was presented to the beloved Guardian, and he has directed me to respond on his behalf.
He is greatly pleased, and values most highly, the establishment of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahà’is of Central and East Africa. This is an historic act, and one that augurs well for the future of the Faith in that promising land. Surely this new pillar of the House of Justice will win many victories for the Cause of God, and spread the Faith rapidly throughout the vast areas coming under their jurisdiction.
The Guardian will pray for the Assembly, the members, and the success of its work.
When your statistics are amplified, the Guardian will appreciate early advices.
The Guardian was happy to receive the photo of the nine friends, eight of the Assembly and Hand of the Cause Músá Banání . When a photo is ready of all nine of the Assembly, he will appreciate having it for placement in the Mansion of BaháVlláh.
The Guardian sends you all his loving Greetings.
