`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.
Cablegram March 3, 1940
