Notes Email me if you know what this text is from, and when.

Text notes that it was transcribed by May Maxwell, and at bottom, it reads "copied by M.S. Perry; 1945". Don Calkins notes that the July 1943 Baha’i News, p. 12, lists a Mrs. Mable Perry as a member of the Baha’i Service for the Blind committee, and that lists a Mable S. Perry, wife of Charles B. Perry, as a resident of East Hartford, Connecticut, in 1920/30/40, born 1876.
