[Letter of March 29, 1928]

My dear Bahá’í sister,
Our Guardian has received with extreme pleasure your letter of February nineteenth from Tokyo.
He is so glad to know that you are finally there and actively busy in a work to which he pays the greatest importance. Being pioneer work it is bound to be slow, but he hopes that it will soon pass beyond the pioneer stage and that Bahá’í Assemblies and groups composed of full fledged and confirmed Bahá’ís will replace your isolated individuals with whom you now communicate.

(in the Guardian’s handwriting)
My dear co-worker:
Please assure the dear friends in Tokyo of my brotherly affection, and sincere and continued prayers for the success of their efforts in the service of our beloved Cause. May the Beloved aid you to assist them and guide them in their task, and strengthen you in your efforts to consolidate the work that has been started in that land.
Your well-wisher, Shoghi
(March 29, 1928)
