“O thou servant of the Beauty of Abha!…”

O thou servant of the Beauty of Abha!
We considered all that thou hast written. It seems that the maid-servant of God, Mrs. ….….., hath arisen to deliver (the truth). If she advanceth in this 721 manner, maketh more effort and day by day groweth in spirituality, sincerity, devotion and severance, in a short time she will become purely merciful and will spiritualize others; she will progress in the stations of sanctity and purity; she will become the possessor of a fluent speech and will find her heart brilliant and full of serenity and faith to such an extent that her pure breath will so take effect even in stone, tree and clay (i.e., in all people), that she, herself, will be astonished. When the interior parts of musical instruments become clear and polished, their tone will take effect and warm the hearts. I hope the maid-servant of God, Mrs. ….….., may attain to this degree, for she is capable.
