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

O thou who art attracted by the Love of God!
In the Persian tongue has thou written a letter; I was happy to read it.
Praise be to God! This is the dawn of the light of unity between the Eastern and Western people. In Persia the English language is being studied widely and in America the Persian tongue is beloved by some dear souls. In both countries the respective languages are being studied. This is in itself a proof that the East and the West (literally, place of sunrise and sunset) shall clasp hands as two families. The standard of unity shall be raised, and the means of love and friendship will be accomplished.
Endeavor to complete the study of the Persian—thus mayest thou read the Tablets of the Blessed Beauty 1 and mayest translate them, and without the interpreter’s aid thou mayest read all my letter to thee.
