Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of March 19th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He is delighted to see that you are in one of the goal cities in Alaska, and that you have been joined by Miss Meyer. He feels sure that this nucleus will soon attract to itself sufficient new Bahá’ís to create a Spiritual Assembly. 1
He urges you to persevere, and assures you of his prayers for your success.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
R. Rabbani
