Letter of 17 August 1953

17 August 1953
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
The beloved Guardian has instructed me to write you on his behalf concerning a gift which has been made by one of the very dear believers in Persia, Mr. … for the international activities of the Faith.
The Guardian has decided that at present he feels the best use for half of this fund is to ask Mr. … to give it to the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Germany and Austria, to be used for the building of the Temple in Frankfurt. He has written Mr. … to this effect; therefore in due course you should receive 50000 tumans, or its equivalent in German marks.
When this gift is received from this devoted believer, the beloved Guardian would like you to write an appropriate letter of appreciation for the very generous gift; sending the letter of appreciation to the Guardian, so that he can see that it reaches Mr. … safely.
The beloved Guardian sends his loving greetings to each and every one of you….
