“O thou who art firm in the Covenant!…”

O thou who art firm in the Covenant!
Thy letter was received. Thou hast written regarding the visit of the beloved maid-servant of God, the attracted one to the fragrance of holiness, Mrs. ….….., to California, which hath been the cause of affinity among the friends and the guidance of others.
Mrs. ….….. is the favored maid-servant of the Blessed Perfection. In reality she is the daughter of 591 the Kingdom and is an informed speaker. Have ye the utmost consideration toward her and show her exceeding respect.
Should anyone in this day attach his heart to the Kingdom, release himself from all else save God and become attracted to the fragrances of holiness, the army of the Kingdom of Abha will help him and the angels of the Supreme Concourse will assist him.
Convey my respectful greeting to Mrs. ….….. I sought for her protection and bounty from the Lord of the Kingdom.
Regarding the question of your presence in Acca now, it is not according to wisdom. Postpone this matter to some other time.
