“O heavenly one!…”

O heavenly one!
The maid-servant of God … hath praised thee! I hope thou wilt acquire great proficiency in writing literature, composition, eloquence of tongue and fluency of speech, co-operating with the maid-servant of God in the service of God, becoming an esteemed servant in the Threshold of Oneness and partaking of a share of the heavenly gifts, and progressing day by 502 day until thou attain to the apex of the excellencies of this human world.
