Letter of 20 October 1948 (Summer School)

20 October 1948 (Summer School)
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter to our beloved Guardian, dated September 9th, was received, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf. 142
He was delighted to see so many of the dear German friends had attended the school, for in this loving Bahá’í association and study a closer unity is created amongst the believers, and new plans born for the teaching work that lies ahead.
He urges you all to exert every effort to spread the Faith in these dark days of crisis the world is still passing through, for in the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh alone can the people find hope, peace and comfort.
He assures you all of his most loving prayers on your behalf, and for the success of your devoted services….
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-workers:
Your joint message truly cheered my heart and served to remind me of the great company of my dearly-beloved brethren who have toiled so devotedly in the past, and are so energetically pursuing their historic tasks at present, in the service of our glorious Faith, I will continue to supplicate the Beloved to bless continually your high endeavours, to enable you to extend the range of your splendid activities, and to lend a tremendous impetus to the onward march of the Faith in your promising country,
Your true and grateful brother
