My dear Bahá’í Sister:
I thank you on behalf of the Guardian for your letter of April 16th.
He was very glad to know that you are now on your way to England by way of America and he hopes that you will find the occasion and the means of visiting the friends and making permanent connections with them. Bertram will of course be delighted to meet you and we hope he is successful in his work there.
I suppose you have all the London addresses as the friends there would be delighted to meet you. Of course if you do decide to visit Haifa on your way back, Shoghi Effendi wishes me to assure you of a most hearty welcome.
With his loving greetings to you all and to the young couple in England and with much love from all here.
Sincerely yours,
Soheil Afnan
[From the Guardian:]
My dear co-worker:
I was so pleased to hear from you and of your plans. I do hope you will be able to visit the Holy Land where you would be most welcome in ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s home. I will pray for the success of your efforts from the depths of my heart when I visit the holy shrines. May the Beloved enable you to render distinguished services to His Cause and remove every obstacle from your path.
Your true brother,
