The Local Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Ketchikan
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your loving letter of May 15th was received by the Beloved Guardian and he has directed me to acknowledge it in his behalf.
The contribution made by the friends in Ketchikan to the International Fund is greatly appreciated. Receipt is enclosed.
The establishment of the new National Spiritual Assembly in Alaska must be a source of great gratification to those of you who have labored so long and diligently in the establishment of the Faith in that very important country. This great blessing likewise carries with it many serious responsibilities. The greatest responsibility today is the diffusion of the Divine Fragrances and the establishment of the Faith far and wide. The Guardian hopes therefore that the Members of your Assembly will arise with renewed vigor and not only spread the Faith more firmly in Ketchikan, but will spread your energies to surrounding areas so that new lights of Divine Guidance may be established in the various centers.
The Guardian assures you of his prayers in your behalf. He sends you his loving greetings.
Faithfully yours,
Leroy Ioas 35
