“O thou who art advancing toward God!…”

O thou who art advancing toward God!
Verily I read thy letter which thou hast sent through Mrs. ….…. and was rejoiced at its contents, which indicated thy excessive love and thy great passion for the Kingdom of God!
O my friend! Thank thou God for He hath illumined thy sight with a radiance which is shining forth from the Sun of Truth; hath quickened thee, and baptized thee with the water of life and with the fire of the love of god.
I beg God to bless thee so that thou mayest diffuse the fragrances of God in those countries and purify hearts from the filth of ignorance and to make thy revered wife and honored daughters signs of His love among the maid-servants of God, and to ordain for thee a reward befitting one who hath attained (the visit of) the Holy Threshold in this Cause.
Verily, I bestowed every kindness upon the maid-servant of God, Mrs. ….…., because she hath been the cause of thy guidance, and hath given thee to drink the cup of knowledge.
