Letter of May 7, 1953

May 7, 1953
Dear Bahá’í Friend:
The Beloved Guardian has instructed me to write to you and ask you to please send me the name and address of the Bahá’í in Samoa, also the name and address of the Bahá’í in New Caledonia. And, will you please advise if a spiritual assembly was formed in Suva on April 21st. This news has come indirectly and he very much wants to have it confirmed by the NSA. You may be sure his eager eyes are on these new places and any news about them makes his heart very happy. Please send the name and address of the secretary of Suva.
The news of the 2nd International Bahá’í Conference has been very thrilling and the Beloved Guardian has been exceedingly happy about it all.
If you will please send the information asked for by return AIR MAIL, I will be very deeply grateful to you.
The work on the Shrine is going ahead very wonderfully, a few tiles have already been placed. We hope someday you will all make the pilgrimage and see this most beautiful Shrine in the heart of Mt. Carmel, fulfilment of prophecy.
Devoted love and thanks
Jessie E. Revell
