“O thou who art firm in the Covenant!…”

O thou who art firm in the Covenant!
Supplicate God that thou mayest be confirmed to what is worthy and fit for the Most Mighty Cycle.
Deliver my respectful greeting to Mr. ….…. and refresh him with regards and affection. Convey my longing greeting to [Messrs.] ….….., ….…. 277 and ….…. and say [to them] to engage with Mr. ….…. in the service of the Word of God with the utmost love and affinity, in order that they may behold the confirmation of the Supreme Kingdom and observe the protection and preservation of His Highness the Almighty. Truly their hearts are like unto a cup, overflowing with the wine of the love of God and at all times I expect to hear good news of them.
O thou dear friend! Thou hast said the truth! Last year 1 was the time of test for all the friends. Trials for the faithful believers are like unto divine bestowal and everlasting gifts.
The firmness and steadfastness of the person will become evident and manifest. How could the disciples of His Holiness (Christ) attain to any spiritual development if they did not undergo trials and tests!
O friend! Although we are weak, yet the confirmations of the Merciful Lord are inexhaustible. Pray thou that the ill-natured become good-natured and the weak become strong.
The dream thou hast seen is in accord with thy interpretation. I hope that Mr. ….…. may become the light of the Merciful One and be confirmed and assisted to spread the Cause of God.
