Dear Bahá’í Brother:
Your letter of April 21st has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He appreciated your loving thought in sending him Riḍván Greetings from a new Alaskan Center. 1
He attaches the greatest importance to the spread of the Faith in that territory, because, as you know, it is destined to have a National Spiritual Assembly of its own ere the termination of the Ten Year Plan; and the sooner the believers can open up new centers and establish new Spiritual Assemblies, the sooner will the happy day come when Alaska will be independent, and have its own national Bahá’í Body.
He assures you he will certainly pray that your sacrifices and your services may be richly rewarded.
He urges you to concentrate on attracting the natives as much as possible, by that he means the Eskimos. These people have a right to hear of the glorious message of Bahá’u’lláh, and he hopes you will be instrumental in attracting many of them to the Faith.
With warmest Bahá’í greetings,
R. Rabbani 58
[From the Guardian:]
Assuring you of my loving prayers for your success and spiritual advancement,
Your true brother,
