“O thou who art advancing towards God!…”

O thou who art advancing towards God!
I have already read thy letter sent to his honor, ….. May God confirm and strengthen thee to serve His Cause and to enable thee to speak His praise among the maid-servants of the Merciful, and to call out in His name in those regions and climes; so that thou mayest work in the vineyard of God with thy heart severed from aught else save God, and overflowing with the waters of the knowledge of God.
We have herewith written answers to the three supplications which thou hast sent.
Rejoice at the glad-tidings of God, in this day wherein the fragrances of holiness have perfumed the nostrils of all in the universe!
