Letter of 28 October 1955

28 October 1955
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of September 26th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
As you know, he is most happy that the believers in Vienna have their own Center, and that in a short time it will be ready for Bahá’í service.
These important institutions of the Faith are in themselves great teachers. The spirit of love and unity among the friends in discussing, arranging and carrying out the activities of the Faith in their Hazíratu’l-Quds, will become as a magnet which will attract to them divine bounties. The Guardian is hoping from this Center the Faith will be carried, not only throughout Vienna, but to other cities in Austria as well….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty, Whose Cause you serve with such courage, devotion and perseverance, guide and sustain you, 245 and aid you to render His Faith notable services in the days to come,
Your true brother,
