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

O thou who art attracted to the Fragrances of God!
Thou hast said aright, that verily, Abdul-Baha looketh to deeds and not to words. Even as it was said by Christ, “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”
Be not grieved if the affairs are made difficult and troubles have waxed intense upon thee from all sides! Verily thy Lord changeth the hardships into facility, troubles into ease and afflictions into greatest composure. Verily, thy Lord is on the right path!
Tests and trials shall soon arise, blessed are those who endure patiently! Blessed are those who keep firm! Be patient, that thou mayest be rendered victorious in thy greatest wishes, and know thou that verily, thou art with me in the nearness of my Lord, the Supreme!
Verily, this is a glad-tidings unto thee forevermore!
