“O thou who art advanced toward God!…”

O thou who art advanced toward God!
Thy letter was received. Its contents indicated that thou hast become alive through the spiritual breaths of his honor, Mr. ….….. Thank thou God that thou hast attained to this bounty and hast caught the light of guidance. Thou must be thankful to his honor, Mr. ….….., to the end of thy days, for from his hand thou hast drunk this overflowing cup of the Most Great Guidance.
Now show thou forth firmness and steadfastness without wavering. If any test fall upon thee, it will be conducive to the strength of thy faith.
