To the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the Anchorage Recording District
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving letter of January 23rd has been received by the Beloved Guardian, and he has directed me to acknowledge it in his behalf.
The Guardian feels the Dedication of the Temple, and the Intercontinental Teaching Conference to be held immediately thereafter, will mark a most important historic milepost in the development of the Faith in America, and the world. It will close the epoch of Temple Building, and open the 10 year period of World Crusade, during which time, the Faith will be established over the face of the earth.
The Guardian is happy Rúhíyyih Khánum and Vice-President Collins of the International Bahá’í Council can attend to represent him. He hopes as many of the Friends as possible will be present.
With loving Bahá’í greetings,
I am,
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas, Asst. Secretary 17
