“O thou son of the associate and companion of Abdul-Baha!…”

O thou son of the associate and companion 1 of Abdul-Baha!
You brought many letters with you from those regions, but on account of the great disturbance it was not possible to write the answers. You saw what a commotion was set up in the Blessed Spot 2 through the instigation of the jealous brother. It still continues. Therefore you must apologize: Say that Abdul-Baha has considered every one of the letters with the eyes of the spirit, has read each, and through the valid messenger—that is, through the spiritual susceptibilities—has sent each the message of peace and greeting. Therefore, let them turn to the blessed and Radiant Spot with a pure heart and an attracted spirit, that they may receive answer through the lights radiating therefrom.
Communication is not confined to writing. This is a trace, while the spiritual message is fruitful and effective. 34 That is the essential, and without it communication is useless.
