`Abdu'l-Bahá's beloved handmaid, the distinguished disciple, May Maxwell,
is gathered into the glory of the Abhá Kingdom. Her earthly life, so rich,
eventful, incomparably blessed, is worthily ended. To sacred tie her signal
services had forged, the priceless honor of a martyr's crown is now added,
a double crown deservedly won. The Seven Year Plan, particularly the
South American campaign, derive fresh impetus from the example of her
glorious sacrifice. Southern outpost of Faith greatly enriched through
association with her historic resting place, destined to remain a poignant
reminder of the resistless march of the triumphant army of Bahá'u'lláh.
Advise believers of both Americas to hold befitting memorial gathering.
