Dear Bahá’í Brother:
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated April 6th 1930 written from London. He was very happy to learn that wherever you have been you have received wonderful reception from the friends. Surely, it is only through such acts of hospitality that the true spirit of the Cause is manifested.
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to assure you of his prayers and extend to you his hope that wherever you go you will feel the divine help and guidance. He hopes that in America you will experience the true spirit of love that animates the friends there and that you will give them Shoghi Effendi’s greetings.
Yours ever sincerely,
Ruhi Afnan
[From the Guardian:]
My dear and precious co-worker:
I was much pleased to hear from you and to learn of your experiences. I trust that the same welcome and loving-kindness 30 will be extended to you by the American friends. You are often in my thoughts, and I will continue to pray for your spiritual as well as material welfare and advancement. Convey, when you write to your Mother, my loving and affectionate greetings.
Your true brother,
