Letter of 11 July 1934

11 July 1934
Dear Mrs. Slade,
On behalf of the Guardian I wish to acknowledge the receipt of your letter, and to assure you once more of his deepfelt appreciation of your highly-valued efforts for the publication of Canon Townshend’s booklet on the Cause. He hopes that the believers the world over will co-operate with your N.S.A. for giving the work the widest publicity possible, and by ordering as many copies as they can for distribution in their own communities. They will surely appreciate, and draw great benefit from, this original and beautifully-written essay of Mr. Townshend, and they will certainly do their best to make it known by the outside world.
Shoghi Effendi wishes you to send him, as soon as the book is published, 150 copies for his library. He will also place some of them in Bahá’u’lláh’s Mansion at Bahjí for the benefit of the Bahá’í as well as non-Bahá’í visitors.
With the renewed assurance of his best wishes and of his continued prayers on your behalf.
Yours in His Service,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless your incessant and meritorious endeavours and crown them with unprecedented success,
Your true and grateful brother,
