Thank you for your response. It is truly appreciated. I am still trying to dig a little deeper here for some additional information. I neglected to explain the REASON for my question in regards to whether or not Abdu'l-Baha specifically said 'Belize' in his original Tablet to the Baha'is of the United States and Canada. Recently it came to my attention that some Baha'is have the understanding that Abdu'l-Baha actually said 'Belize' (not British Honduras) in the original tablet found in the Tablets of the Divine Plan before 1920. This is quite remarkable if it happens to be true since the country did not take that name until about 1970 or so. Can anyone confirm or refute the truth of this from the original tablet? Did Abdu'l-Baha indeed specifically say BELIZE?
The tablet being referred to here is Abdu'l-Baha's "Tablet to the Baha'is of the United States and Canada" which was revealed on March 8, 1917 in the summerhouse (Isma'il Aqa's room) at Abdu'l-Baha's house in Haifa. On page 104 (14.7) in Tablets of the Divine Plan, Abdu'l-Baha says, "Select ye important personages, or else they by themselves, becoming severed from rest and composure of the world, may arise and travel throughout Alaska, the republic of Mexico, and south of Mexico in the Central American republics, such as Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, and BELIZE:..... .
Warmest regards to all.
