Letter of 9 April 1949

9 April 1949
The Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Edinburgh
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
As our beloved Guardian is at present very pressed for time in connection with the tremendous amount of work the building of the Shrine entails at this juncture, I am answering your loving Naw-Rúz Message very briefly on his behalf.
You may be sure the work in Edinburgh is very dear to his 401 heart and he will continue to pray for its advancement, and for each and every one of you, in the Holy Shrines.
With warmest greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless, continually and abundantly, your high endeavours, aid you to add to your numbers, deepen your understanding of the essentials of His Faith, extend the range of your activities, consolidate your achievements, and win great and memorable victories for its institutions,
Your true and grateful brother,
