Present the Teachings at Various Conventions & Gatherings

This is to acknowledge the receipt of your letter … reporting the events of the Brahmo Samaj Centenary gathering to Shoghi Effendi. Such meetings are wonderful occasions for showing the spirit and teachings of the Cause…. Shoghi Effendi’s hope is that at such Conventions and gatherings the friends would present the teachings to persons otherwise inaccessible for individual contact.
[From the Guardian:]
I heartily approve the project of a Baha’i Convention and would leave the choice of the site and other arrangements to the National Assembly. The Cause in various countries is making a great headway and the reference of the case of the 23 Baghdad House to the Mandates Commission of the League of Nations is a great step forward.
