Letter of 24 September 1949
To John A. Robarts1
Dear Bahá’í Brother:
He was very happy to hear the good news you conveyed in your letter, especially about the prospect of being able to arrange a pioneer for Greenland, as he attaches the greatest importance to this work, a work he feels which would particularly rejoice ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s heart. He hopes the Canadian National Spiritual Assembly will be able to follow up this possibility and crown it with success.
He will certainly pray for your dear family, and your success in every way. Your constant services are deeply appreciated, you may be sure, by him.
With Bahá’í love,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-worker:
I was so pleased to receive your letter and to learn of your active participation in the proceedings of the European Conference. Your meritorious activities and services in Canada are deeply appreciated, and I will supplicate the Beloved to bless continually your efforts, guide every step you take, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to win splendid victories for the newly born institutions of our beloved Faith. Persevere, rest assured and be happy.
Your true and grateful brother,
