Dear Bahá’í Sister,
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to thank you for the M.O. for £1—which he has safely received, sent for the help of the sufferers in Persia.
He is himself sending this money to the Nat. Assembly in Teheran, and has requested them to send him the receipt for it—When he receives their receipt he will forward it to you, and urges you to give it to the friend who sent the money. The Persian friends will be very much pleased at receiving this kind remembrance and help from far distant New Zealand!
With love and warm Bahá’í greetings from the holy household and the friends here, to the dear friends in Auckland.
In the Master’s Service,
Sincerely Yours,
Ethel J. Rosenberg
[From the Guardian:]
My dear co-worker:
I am deeply touched by this further evidence of the love and devotion of the New-Zealand Bahá’ís and I will gladly forward their contribution of our friend to the Teheran Assembly to be sent by them to the sufferers in Jahrum. I will ardently pray for every one of you that the Beloved may guide your steps and lead you to glorious victory. I urge you to communicate regularly and frequently with the Bahá’í newsletter editor through Mr Horace Holley and report to him the progress of your activities. It is so essential and valuable.
Your true brother,
