Letter of 6 May 1928
6 May 1928
To an individual believer
My dear Bahá’í Sister,
He was much interested in what you had written him as regards oil mines in your and neighbouring properties and I must say at the beginning that he has been deeply touched by the spirit in which you had written your letter and by your desire that in accordance with Bahá’í teachings, if the mines prove valuable, the proper proportion may go for public Bahá’í utilities.
As regards the exploitation of the lots, and their value from a practical point of view, of course our Guardian would not wish to say much and would advise you to seek expert advice on the subject. Perhaps in the few words he will append to this letter, he will suggest the name of one of the friends who could help and advise you in the matter.
Please accept the love and good wishes of the Master’s family for yourself, your husband and children and permit me to assure you of Shoghi Effendi’s heartfelt greetings.
Sincerely yours in His service,
[From the Guardian:]
My dear co-worker:
I advise you to consult our dear, trusted and capable brother
in the Faith, Mr. Roy Wilhelm,1
who I feel will be only too glad
to assist you with his advice regarding a matter that may prove
Your true brother,
|1.||Roy Wilhelm—an American believer whom Shoghi Effendi appointed as a Hand of the Cause of God after his passing in 1951. See The Bahá’í World Vol. XII, 662–664, In Memoriam. [ Back To Reference]|
