“O thou dear maid-servant of God!…”

O thou dear maid-servant of God!
Thy letter and that of thy revered daughter were received last year, but the storm of trials was so severe as to hinder the writing of the answers. You will certainly excuse. But I have implored and supplicated the Kingdom of Abha for you and have sought help and grace (in your behalf). Thus may your hearts be set aglow with the fire of the love of God and [may it] 510 burn away the self-life. Night and day may you serve the divine garden, endeavor to promulgate the lights of the knowledge of God, attract souls and set aglow the hearts. I am hopeful that thus will ye do. If ye reach this most glorious and sublime station, ye will receive congratulative letters from the Kingdom of Abha.
