Letter of 7 April 1947

7 April 1947
National Youth Committee
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your letters dated August 10th (from the secretary) and December 19th and March 18th (from the Business Manager of the Editorial Committee) were received, and as our beloved Guardian is greatly overburdened by his steadily expanding correspondence, he has instructed me to answer these communications all in one.
He was very pleased to receive copies of “Youth Bulletin,” which he thinks is starting out in the right direction; he would like to receive this publication regularly.
The work you are doing is very important, and the British Bahá’í Youth should feel very encouraged to see the way some of their members have arisen and gone forth to pioneer. He hopes others will follow this example in order to ensure the success of the Six Year Plan.
You may be sure his loving prayers are offered for you all in the Holy Shrines….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh sustain, bless and guide you in your notable, meritorious, and deeply appreciated activities, aid you to 198 extend the range of your services, and lend a great impetus to the progress of the Plan which the English believers are so devotedly and assiduously prosecuting.
Your true and grateful brother,
