Letter of 26 September 1957

26 September 1957
The Bahá’ís of Portsmouth
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of August 23rd has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was happy to learn of the spirit of active service which animates the friends in that city, and of the practical way you are approaching the teaching work.
Through love and unity among the believers, and the wise and persistent efforts of all the Bahá’ís, great results should be forthcoming.
He will certainly pray for the progress of the Faith there, and for the enrollment of a number of newly-declared believers by next Riḍván.
With warm Bahá’í greetings, 418
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved of our hearts, guide, bless and sustain you, remove every obstacle from your path, and graciously assist you to extend the range of your highly valued activities and consolidate your historic achievements,
Your true brother,
