[Letter of June 8, 1954]

Please refer to our previous correspondence with regard to the purchase of a Haziratu’l-Quds in Tokyo. The beloved Guardian feels this is a matter of great importance, and should be accomplished during the present year.
He has written to the American N.S.A. in detail concerning the matter, instructing them to proceed at once with the development of this project, so that it may be concluded during the present year, if at all possible.
The beloved Guardian is sending a contribution of £500. As you know, a Haziratu’l-Quds was given by Mr. Momtazi in Mukonoso, Hyogo-ken. The Guardian would see no objection to this 97 Haziratu’l-Quds being sold, and the fund received thereby being used to defray the cost of the Haziratu’l-Quds in Tokyo. It is far more important that a Hazira be established in Tokyo, which is the seat of the future National Assembly, than in Mukonoso, Hyogo-ken. Of course this can only be done in case Mr. Momtazi is entirely agreeable.
