[Letter of May 22, 1923]

To Miss Alexander
Shoghi Effendi has very kindly instructed me to acknowledge receipt of the letter dated April 9th by the following dearly loved friends in the great Cause of El Abhá in Tokyo, K. Sawada, H. Tanaka, Ida Finch, Ei Noguchi, Y. S. Ling, K. S. Ling, Yoshio Nakamura, Fumi Sato, Yuri Takao, B. Enomoto.
The few expressions of devotion by each one of them on one sheet of paper speak out for themselves of the unity and love that exists between the Bahá’í friends of Tokyo and express in a most vivid form the Bahá’í spirit and teachings which indeed above all stand out for unity and love amongst mankind.
Shoghi Effendi is deeply impressed by the letters, and earnestly hopes to see the Bahá’ís of Japan from whom he will anxiously expect to hear, increase their efforts and spread out the Bahá’í teachings all over Japan for the good of mankind.
I hope our dear sister Miss Martha Root has safely arrived and that by the grace of the Almighty her stay will be productive of great results.
(May 22, 1923)
