“O thou who art advancing toward the Kingdom!…”

O thou who art advancing toward the Kingdom!
Thy letter was received. From its contents it became known that thou hast turned thy face toward His Highness, the Merciful One, after the reading of the Book of Ighan 1 , and hast become a new creation.
I trust in the favor of the True One, that thy sisters and brothers may likewise attain, and that thou mayest become confirmed with the confirmation of the Holy Spirit, in order that thou mayest be the cause of teaching many souls, and guide every person with whom thou hast association and intercourse.
I ask from God that thou mayest be the cause of the awakening and mindfulness of thy father and mother, and that many of thy friends may rend asunder the veils of superstition and behold the Light of Truth.
O thou advancer toward the Kingdom! Endeavor thou day by day to increase thy yearning and attraction, so that the attitude of supplication and prayer may be realized more often.
If we do not meet in this physical word, I ask from God that we may meet in the realm of vision, and that day by day the revelation of the Kingdom may become greater. ***
Convey my respectful greeting to Mr. … I hope that he will become confirmed and assisted in his 523 voyage to India; and that the power of the Word of God will penetrate in such wise in those parts (India) that Mr. … himself will stand astonished and add to his faith and assurance.
