“O thou kind friend!…”

O thou kind friend!
Thy letter was received and its contents considered. Man must, under all conditions, be thankful to God, the One, for it is said in the blessed text: “If ye be thankful I will increase thee.”
Man must seek shelter in the mercy and protection of God, for he is constantly subject to a hundred thousand dangers. Save for the refuge and protection of the Most High, man is without shelter.
I ask God to help thy children to gain knowledge, to attain virtues and morals which are the refinements of the reality of man, and to strengthen thee to remain firm.
Convey my respect and greeting to Mr….….. and Mrs. ….….. I trust in the providence of God that thou mayest ascertain what is worthy and 68 fitting for Bahais, and that day by day the love of God may increase in the hearts.
