“O thou maid-servant of God!…”

O thou maid-servant of God!
The subject matter of thy letter is known to me. Happy is thy condition, for thou hast loved Jesus always and wept over His sufferings. Sufferings though they were intense in those days, yet they are more intense in these days and are more worthy of being wept over. But at present, one must not weep, but one must show forth firmness and steadfastness and withstand the tests.
I beg of God that that maid-servant of God and all her family be blessed, remain firm and steadfast in love for His Holiness Baha’, and arise (to do) that which is befitting these days.
