“O thou Secretary of the meanings emanated from the…”

O thou Secretary of the meanings emanated from the hearts of the people of the Kingdom.
Verily, I have read thine eloquent letter and brilliant writing, which indicated the attraction of the people of God by the fragrances of His Kingdom, and their gathering in the assembly of the merciful feelings and the congregation of the upright.
I do supplicate God to confirm that spiritual assembly, that gathering of commemoration, to that whereby the merciful faces brighten, and I beseech Him to assist them and thee to that whereby man ascends the highest and noblest station of excellence and the loftiest apex of honor, to make them humble and courteous before the beloved of God, to become severed from aught else save God, to beseech the Kingdom of ABHA, to be freed from every mention save the commemoration of God, and to be sanctified from all the grades of passion and desire, with pure, holy hearts which are devoid of every feeling except entire attention unto God, the Lord of the present and the world to come.
I have written answers to the letters which thou hast sent and I enclose them with this Tablet. I wrote also a Tablet to the assembly 1 ; read it unto them with a fluent tongue and a heart overflowing with the love of God.
