Letter of 27 September 1956

27 September 1956
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Please refer to your letter of July 17th and my reply of August 26th, with regard to a gift of $1,000 from … to the Austrian Fund.
It is satisfactory to receive this gift, as … is a Bahá’í of record of the … Assembly.
As I wrote you however, it cannot be used for the Endowment; as a gift of $1,000 has already been made by … for this purpose. Thus … should be informed, so he may direct in what manner he wishes the money used, or if he gives it for the General Fund, which is, of course, best….
