[Letter of October 16, 1948]

He (the Guardian) is delighted over the progress the Faith is making in Japan, and feels greatly attracted to the Japanese believers, who show a spirit of sincerity and faith which augurs well for the future development of the work there.
(signed by R. Rabbani)
(in the Guardian’s handwriting)
Dear and valued co-worker:
Your outstanding pioneer services are indeed worthy of the highest praise, and I am deeply grateful to you for the work you have accomplished. The firm establishment of a spiritual assembly in Japan and its consolidation, as well as the formation of small groups and isolated centers, will no doubt act as a magnet that will draw the inestimable blessings of Bahá’u’lláh. Persevere in your historic task and rest assured and be happy.
Your true and grateful brother, Shoghi
(October 16, 1948)
