[Letter of July 19, 1954]

Your loving letter … has just come to hand, telling of the funds which you have available now, since the generous gift of Mr. N. Momtazi, for the Haziratu’l-Quds in Tokyo.
You have in mind that the Hazira need not be an elaborate place. It should be a building which you own, and which can be used now as the Haziratu’l-Quds for the Local Tokyo Assembly, to be utilized later as the National Haziratu’l-Quds for the National Spiritual Assembly when it is formed.
The important thing is that this piece of property should be acquired for as reasonable a price as possible.
The Guardian will await with expectation, advice from you as to the acquisition of this important piece of property 1 .
The Guardian sends each one his loving greetings.

1. The purchase of the Tokyo Hazira was accomplished that year. It was not necessary to sell the Mukonoso property as Mr. Momtazi contributed a like amount toward the purchase of the Tokyo Hazira. When the Guardian was informed of the purchase, he cabled “Delighted loving prayers” to the Tokyo Local Spiritual Assembly.   [ Back To Reference]
