Letter of 23 February 1955

23 February 1955
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
The beloved Guardian is very closely watching the development of the Ten Year Crusade on all fronts. One of the goals of the second phase of the Ten Year Crusade is the incorporation of local and national assemblies.
The Guardian is hoping that your National Assembly may take this important matter in hand, so that during the coming Bahá’í year, as many as possible of your local assemblies will become incorporated. He feels this is a very important activity, and one which you should follow up just as closely as possible.
Will you please send me a report for the Guardian of any activities along this line which are underway; and if not, what can be done to set such a program in motion.
It is needless for me to comment of course on the fact that another one of the major objectives of the second phase of the Ten Year Crusade is the multiplication of Bahá’í centers, and particularly the development of Bahá’í groups into assemblies. The way in which this can be best accomplished is by the Bahá’ís in the larger centers dispersing to weak areas or to entirely new centers.
The Guardian sends you his loving greetings….
