Central Fund

That you may reinforce this Teaching Campaign—so vitally needed in these days—and conduct, properly and efficiently, the rest of your manifold activities, spiritual as well as humanitarian, it is urgently necessary to establish that Central Fund, which if generously supported and upheld by individual friends and local Assemblies, will soon enable you to execute your plans with promptness and vigor.
It is my earnest prayer, in the day-time and in the night season, that the ever-guiding Hand of our loved and departed Master may graciously aid you to surmount every obstacle, and will lead, through you,—His chosen ones in that land,—the Ark of His Cause, to its promised haven of glory and triumph.
With heartfelt congratulations and best wishes,
I am your brother and fellow-worker,
Haifa, Palestine.
May 6th, 1923.
P.S. I enclose a copy of my translation 1 of Bahá’u’lláh’s Words of Wisdom, which you will feel at liberty to circulate amongst the friends.
