“O thou who art attracted to the Beauty of Abha!…”

O thou who art attracted to the Beauty of Abha!
For a period of time no news hath been outwardly received from thee, but spiritual communications are continual (between us). Thou hast always been remembered and been present here. Though bodily ailments have come upon thee, yet the divine health is always constant and permanent. If thou knewest to what favors thou hast attained and how thou art gazed upon by the eye of the Beauty of Abha, even thy bodily ailments will be removed and merciful glad-tidings will surround thee.
Thou hast asked for permission to come: If the means for a comfortable journey are, in the best manner, arranged and ready for thee, thou art permitted to come here.
That merciful maid-servant (i.e., thyself) seeth some spiritual dreams (or visions). These are, in reality, discoveries of the heart and are spiritual visions. I beg of God that, through the power of insight, thou mayest continually witness the lights of the Kingdom of Abha.
Thou hast written that the fundamental basis is 730 love. This is the actual truth; the divine splendors are founded on love and the radiance of the Merciful One in the human world produceth heartfelt attractions.
Convey on behalf of Abdul-Baha the most wonderful Abha greeting to Dr. ….….. in Cleveland and tell her I always bear a resemblance of her.
Convey the most wonderful greeting of Abha to the attracted maid-servant of God, Mrs. ….…..
O maid-servant of God! The Lord of the Kingdom hath raised His voice with the utmost power and strength and is conquering the realms of hearts and souls with the hosts of the Supreme Concourse. All holy souls in the kingdom of existence respond unto this voice and cause the call, “Ya Baha El-Abha!” to reach the Lofty Apex.
All the members of the household send their most wonderful Abha greeting.
Upon ye be greeting and praise!
Abdul-Baha Abbas.
