Letter of January 17th, 1923

To the members of the National Spiritual Assembly.
Dear friends:
It is a great pleasure for me to share with you the translation 1 of some of the prayers and Tablets of our beloved Master, the reading of which I trust will inspire you and strengthen you in your work of service to His Cause.
I trust that in the course of time I will be enabled to send you 33 regularly correct and reliable translations of the various prayers and Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, which will unfold to your eyes a new vision of His Glorious Mission on earth and give you an insight into the character and meanings of His Divine Teachings.
I shall await very eagerly any suggestions you would like to give me on this point and on all other matters that pertain to the interests of the Cause in America, and I assure you again of my readiness and wish to be of help and service to those faithful and devoted servants of Bahá’u’lláh in that land.
Your brother and co-worker,
Haifa, Palestine,
January 17th, 1923.
1. These translations, with others received later, were published as a pamphlet by the N.S.A.   [ Back To Reference]
