“O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!…”

O thou who art attracted by the Fragrances of God!
Verily, I received thy letter which proved thy yearning to the Kingdom of God, thy exceeding desire to the Beauty of God and thy great attachment unto the Word of God.
Know, verily, that thy letters did not reach me until now; but I love thee with all my heart and my soul, for the sake of God.
Regarding thy presence, at this time, in this Brilliant Spot 1 —it is not in accord with the wisdom revealed in the Book. But I pray God to make thee a manifestation of His hidden favors, so that thou be with me in His Sublime Kingdom.
We send for thee and thy revered wife, stones of the Greatest Name. 2
