Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your two letters of May 25th have been received, and the beloved Guardian thanks you for them, and for the loving sympathy which you express.
He hopes that you will make every effort to attend the New Delhi Conference, as it will be a very historic occasion, and the more Bahá’ís from Australia and New Zealand that are present, the better. 54
You should get in touch with the Indian National Spiritual Assembly as regards accommodation etc.
This has been a very tiring winter for the beloved Guardian. He has had so many pilgrims, and so many problems locally, and an ever-increasing amount of work, so I will make this letter brief.
He assures you your services are deeply appreciated, and that he will remember you in his prayers.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
R. Rabbani
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved bless, guide and sustain you, and enable you to promote the best interests of His Faith,
Your true brother,
