[Letter of April 19, 1957]

The various materials which you sent to the Guardian he has read with great interest—the pamphlet on the recent Congress of Religions held in Tokyo, the English summaries of the important Bahá’í News Geppo, and your report of the progress of the Faith in that promising country.
The Guardian is looking forward with keen anticipation to the forthcoming Riḍván period, as it marks the establishment of thirteen new National Assemblies; the most important of which are in the Pacific area; the one centered in Tokyo, the one in Djakarta, and the third in New Zealand.
The Guardian is well pleased with the teaching work in Japan. He hopes this branch of your service will be greatly reinforced and stimulated by the establishment of the new National Assembly.
He will pray for the friends, for Japan, and for the success of the labors of the Faithful.
He sends his loving greetings.
