Letter of 23 March 1956

23 March 1956
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
The beloved Guardian was happy to receive your message of greeting dated February 19th, signed by all those present, and to see that it was possible for such a large number of the friends to attend this gathering.
He hopes that this year, Number 113, the Year of Abhá of the sixth Váhid in the Bahá’í calendar, will prove to be a truly “Most Luminous” one; and that, in spite of the ever-present difficulties which must constantly be met and surmounted, your National Assembly, reinforced in all its efforts by the entire body of the believers, may cause the Faith to forge ahead in those regions with yet greater momentum and power.
He will remember you all in his loving prayers….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless your efforts, guide every step you take, remove all obstacles from your path, and aid you to win great victories in the service of His glorious Faith,
Your true brother,
