To Emeric Sala1
Dear Bahá’í Brother,
He has felt from the very beginning that these gifted, sensitive Latins, who are capable of being both spiritual and intellectual, have a great contribution to make to the future progress of the Cause everywhere, and he is very anxious that they should become strong enough to manage their own affairs.
The many valuable services you are rendering the Faith—through your book, 2 your teaching trips, and your local Bahá’í work—are very deeply appreciated by him, and he rejoices to see you and your dear wife toiling so faithfully in the service of our beloved Cause. In this connection he wishes to thank you for the copies of your book which you sent him and which he placed in various Bahá’í libraries here.
He will pray that your labours for the Faith may be ever-increasingly blessed and fruitful.
With Bahá’í love,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-worker:
The services which you and your dear wife have rendered in Latin America are highly meritorious, and evoke my heartfelt admiration. I pray you may have similar opportunities in the near future, and that the Beloved may, wherever you labour, bless abundantly your notable activities and accomplishments. Persevere in your work, rest assured, and be happy.
Your true and grateful brother,
