`Abdu'l-Bahá'S HISTORIC APPEAL : Message to 1936 Convention

Convey to American believers abiding gratitude efforts unitedly exerted in teaching field. Inaugurated campaigns should be vigorously pursued, systematically extended. Appeal to assembled delegates ponder historic appeal voiced by `Abdu'l-Bahá in Tablets of the Divine Plan. Urge earnest deliberation with incoming National Assembly to insure its complete fulfilment. First Century of Bahá'í era drawing to a close. Humanity entering outer fringes most perilous stage its existence. Opportunities of present hour unimaginably precious. Would to God every State within American Republic and every Republic in American continent might ere termination of this glorious century[The First Century of the Bahá'í Era, ending May 22, 1944.] embrace the light of the Faith of Bahá'u'lláh and establish structural basis of His World Order.
Cablegram May 1, 1936
