Letter of 5 June 1956

5 June 1956
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of April 19th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He is very happy that Vienna now has its own Hazíratu’l-Quds, which will become the National Headquarters of the Austrian National Spiritual Assembly when formed.
This important step forward is bound to reflect itself in the teaching work, and attract many new souls to the Faith. 260
The establishment of the other Centers in Austria during the past year has been most encouraging, and he hopes that by Spring of next year there will be a number of flourishing Spiritual Assemblies.
He will pray for you all and for the success of the work in Vienna….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty, Whose Cause you serve so devotedly, reward you abundantly for your labours, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to win great victories in the days to come,
Your true brother,
