Letter of 6 October 1956 (First Austrian Summer School)

6 October 1956 (First Austrian Summer School)
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your note of greeting dated August 29th, signed by all present on this important occasion, together with its 277 enclosures, has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf. He was happy to see the names of so many participants, as such gatherings bring a fresh spirit and a renewed determination to carry forward the work to all the friends.
The Guardian assures you he will remember you in his loving prayers; and he urges you to steadily, courageously and whole-heartedly, pursue your goals under the historic World Spiritual Crusade, confident that this will attract to you the blessings of Bahá’u’lláh….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty guide your steps in the path of service, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to extend the range of your meritorious services, and win great victories in the days to come,
Your true brother,
