Abstract Answers to three questions: Why were steps taken to elect a Universal House of Justice with the foreknowledge that there would be no Guardian? Was the time ripe for such an action? Could not the International Bahá'í Council have carried on the work?
Notes Addressed to a National Spiritual Assembly and later made available for Bahá'ís throughout the world.
