Messages To America


Shades of night descending on imperilled humanity are inexorably deepening. American believers, heirs of Bahá'u'lláh's covenant, prosecutors of `Abdu'l-Bahá's Plan, are confronted by supreme opportunity to vindicate indestructibility of their faith, inflexibility their resolution, their incorruptibility, sanctity for appointed task. Anxiously, passionately entreat them, whatever obstacles the march of tragic events may create, however distressing barriers predicted calamities raise between them and sister communities and possibly Faith's World Center, to unwaveringly hold aloft torch whose infant light heralds the birth of the effulgent World Order destined to supplant disrupting civilization.
Cablegram August 30, 1939
