Letter of 7 February 1954
7 February 1954
To the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of St. Lambert

The sudden passing of the honoured and greatly confirmed Hand of the Cause of God, dear Dorothy Baker,1 is a great loss to the work of the Faith, particularly in the teaching field, where she rendered such tireless and invaluable services, and where the need for such dedicated Bahá’ís is at the present time so great.

With warm Bahá’í love,
[From the Guardian:]
