Fresh, ominous rumblings demonstrate the inevitability and foreshadow
the approach of the final eruption involving the dissolution of a lamentably
defective international order. The privileged community of American
believers forewarned, undismayed, spiritually equipped. Notwithstanding
the gravity of the times, they will pursue unswervingly the divinely-chartered
course, their attention undistracted, their objective unobscured, their
resolve unimpaired, their support undiminished, their loyalty unsullied. The
immediate obligation is to complete settlement of Delaware, Utah, Manitoba,
and Nova Scotia before termination of Bahá'í administrative year.
Responsibility solemn, pressing, unavoidable.
Cablegram March 24, 1939
