23: Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge …

1 Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated August 25th 1932 and to extend his deep appreciation for your kind words of sympathy. This loss is a thing that will be bitterly felt by every Bahá’í throughout the world, because she used to be a source of inspiration to every one of them. The mere coming into her presence and thinking of the trials and difficulties she had to pass through in her life, was sufficient to create in us new hope and arouse us to stronger determination to promote the Cause she suffered for.
1. 8 October 1932, to the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Adelaide, Australia   [ Back To Reference]
