“O thou who hast acknowledged the Kingdom of God!…”

O thou who hast acknowledged the Kingdom of God!
I received thy letter wherein thou hast confessed the appearance of the Kingdom of God at this time, declared His Oneness and believed in His Words. Blessed art thou for this clear confession! Thank the maid-servant of God ….….…… for she hath guided 84 thee to this Path and declared to thee the Call of God. Shouldst thou offer all the treasures of the earth to her, they would not equal this great guidance.
Depend upon God, be sincere and sever thyself from all else save Him. Thus thou wilt receive the teaching of God and thy heart will be made happy. May thy tongue praise Him and thy sight behold the light shining from the Sun of Truth.
Verily, this is a rich blessing for which the saints of the past longed. Be happy and say: “God chooses for His favors whomsoever He willeth. He is the Merciful, the Generous!”
