[Letter of May 20, 1928]

He (the Guardian) was very pleased to receive the encouraging news that (your letter) contained and to learn that an article had already appeared on the subject of the Cause in the press. Perhaps you will make an effort that similar articles may appear in other papers so as to attract the attention of the reading and thinking public. Of course your ultimate goal, Shoghi Effendi is sure, is nothing less than the establishment of a capable, devoted and progressive Bahá’í center there.
(signed by Soheil Afnan)
(in the Guardian’s handwriting)
My dear and valued Bahá’í sister:
I wish to assure you in person of my eagerness to hear from you regularly, frequently and in detail, of my continued prayers for you, and of my sense of pride and satisfaction in view of your devoted and pioneer services in that promising country. Though trials, tests, anxieties and cares beset your path, yet you should never falter in your faith and hope that eventually, through you and those who after you will tread your path, the sovereignty of Bahá’u’lláh will be firmly established in that land and your heart’s desire will in the end be fulfilled.
Your true and affectionate brother, Shoghi
(May 20, 1928) 59
