Beloved Bahá’í Sister,
Your welcome letter dated August 17th has been received and read with deepest appreciation by the Guardian.
May I again express his sincere hope that your long-cherished 44 desire to visit the Holy Shrines may be fulfilled very soon, and that through this pilgrimage you may attain a renewed zeal and vigour, as well as a new vision of the task you are called upon to accomplish for the Faith in New-Zealand.
In closing let me assure you and your fellow-workers in Auckland of his profound appreciation of your determination to press forward the work in the teaching field. He is ardently praying for the guidance and success of your labours.
With warmest greetings,
Yours in His Service,
H. Rabbani
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved fulfil your heart’s desire, and enable you to promote effectively the sacred and manifold interests of our beloved and glorious Faith,
Your true and grateful brother,
