“O thou who art attracted to the Fragrances of God!…”

O thou who art attracted to the Fragrances of God!
Verily, I considered the meanings of thy beautiful words and found them as a peerless, brilliant pearl, shining with a luster of the lights of the love of God. God shall surely enable thee [to speak] in more eloquent and wonderful words through a confirmation from the Spirit of the gift of God.***
O maid-servant of God! Verily, the picture (photograph) is an indication of what is in the heart of man. There are faces which are rejoiced and brilliant like 201 unto the garden of paradise and faces which are dusty and dark and are covered with the dimness of fire.
Verily I beg of God that He may strengthen thee in whatever matter thou mayest undertake and unto which thou mayest advance.
O maid-servant of God! Thy heart shall surely have attractions and revelations through the power of the Beauty of El-ABHA, which will be followed by glad-tidings and signs, in every minute and instant. Verily, I reveal unto thee in spirit and address thee in heart, a speech which will open unto thee the doors of mysteries which are concealed behind veils. When mirrors become pure and the lights shine, the signs of the Sun of Truth shall reflect therein with most wonderful splendors.
O maid-servant of God! Verily, I have not forgotten thee and will not forget thee. Trust thou in the love of Abdul-Baha, for verily, nothing equals it.
O maid-servant of God! Verily, the Household 1 present unto thee greeting and praise, with all longing and attraction.
