56: Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated…

Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated January 26th 1932 which accompanied a printed copy of his last general letter. He thanks you both for this as well as for the one hundred copies you are shipping to him. He is deeply gratified to learn that the friends find it interesting and worthwhile enough as to make its subject-matter the topic of their teaching campaign. He sincerely hopes that this will also awaken some of the friends to the importance of this teaching of the Cause and stimulate them to make a thorough and deep study of it. For it undoubtedly forms the goal of the social precepts of the Faith. There is no reason why the Bahá’ís should not take the lead in advocating such a federation of the world, towards which the world is driven by forces it cannot control….
(16 February 1932 to the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States and Canada) [56]
