Looking back in Wonder, Philip Hainsworth, p209

Dear Bahá’í Brother,

Your letter of August 29 has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.

He will be happy to hear from the Rev. W Hellaby; and he feels, when he leaves the church, he should courageously give the Faith as his reason for doing so.

The Guardian says you, yourself, should not be discouraged. You have already accomplished much, and will no doubt render even greater services in the days to come.

He assures you of his loving prayers for those whose names you have mentioned, as well as for your constant strength and guidance in your labours.

With warmest Bahá’i greetings,

R Rabbání

In her own handwriting:

Dear Philip,

The beloved Guardian was most happy to hear of your marriage and hopes your union will be blessed and enable you to achieve even greater victories for our Faith with the help of your wife.

May the Almighty bless your union, reward you abundantly for your past labours, that are indeed truly historic, and enable you, together with your wife, to render memorable services to his Faith and its nascent institutions, in that promising continent.

Your true brother, Shoghi
