The National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Alaska
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
The Beloved Guardian has instructed me to write your Assembly in connection with the important goal of your six year plan, of purchasing or acquiring the site for the future Bahá’í Temple in Alaska. 34
No publicity of any type should be given this matter at this time, but the Committee should proceed with its work quietly and wisely. They should simply try to purchase a piece of land, without indicating its purpose. No contact should be had with the Government.
If your Assembly is not incorporated, or your local Assembly, then the land can be registered in the name of individuals appointed by the National Assembly.
Before actual purchase is made, the Guardian would appreciate advice as to the location, size of land, cost, etc. This you can send to him through me.
With loving Bahá’í greetings,
I am,
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas
