Letter of December 2, 1951

Haifa, Israel,
December 2, 1951.
Mrs. Dulcie E. Dive, Treasurer.
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your letter of October 17th has been received by the beloved Guardian, as well as the contribution you forwarded, a receipt for which I am enclosing.
Will you kindly assure the individuals, groups and assemblies who contributed, of the Guardian’s very deep appreciation of this assistance they are giving to the work of the Shrine here. The building is going ahead rapidly; and he hopes that, within a couple of months, the octagon will be finished, and the drum section which will support the dome, can be commenced without any interruption.
With loving Bahá’í greetings,
R. Rabbani.
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved abundantly reward and bless all who have contributed for the construction of the Shrine, sustain them in their efforts, and aid them to win great victories in the service of our beloved Faith,
Your true brother,
