“O thou who art advancing unto God!…”

O thou who art advancing unto God!
Thy precious and beloved letter came to hand and all contents noted. Consider how the bounty of God 258 hath surrounded thee until it brought thee to the shore of the sea of the endless and boundless gift of God! I supplicate the benevolence of God and His providence to make thee a dazzling light and a merciful and bounteous gift to His creatures; and to enable thee to be firm and steadfast in the Cause of the Truth and to appoint thee as a means for the exaltation of His Word.
