First of all I'd like to thank you for maintaining the website of Baha'i academic resources. I have just passed along to a friend the documents at: bahai-library.com/guardian/easy.familiarity.html

This is a rather valuable collection of quotations/letters. The issues discussed in these letters are very important and is is unfortunate, I think, that this information in its entirety is not available in any officially approved Baha'i Publication but is only available in a website maintained by an individual. I am well-versed in the Baha'i teachings and I do not doubt their authenticity but others may not feel so sure. So I wanted to ask you the following questions:

How did you come in contact with these documents? If I were to show them to another believer, do you know of a means of independent verification of their authenticity that might be recommended to that believer? Of course one cannot recommend to others the blanket acceptance of any Baha'i Document one sees on the Web.

Thanks in advance for your help.
