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

O thou who art attracted to the Fragrances of God!
Thy letter *** was received. Its contents were of the utmost grace, for it indicated that thou hast become a heavenly, spiritual Bahai; that is, thou hast found the attractions of heart and art aspiring to associate with the Holy Fragrances.
Peter, who was the Rock (of the Christian dispensation), was firm and solid; but, in the moment of Christ’s deliverance, that Rock quaked a little, until the crowing of the cock was raised. I hope that thou wilt become, in steadfastness, so firm and so solid that thousands of deliverances would not cause thee to tremble.
This is the New Spirit and the uninterrupted assistance. When this is attained, the language will become eloquent and the utterance penetrating.
