Letter of 30 November 1956

30 November 1956
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your loving letter of October 17th was duly received, and its contents presented to the Beloved Guardian. He has directed me to reply as follows:
He feels it is more advisable for … to remain in Budapest, where the Faith needs every help it can get, rather than go to either Austria or Germany.
Of course, the terrible events in Hungary may have changed the whole aspect of this important matter, and the question not now be in need of an answer. The Guardian 282 hopes that … has not suffered nor met with misfortune in that unhappy city.
At the same time, the Faith is needed more than ever, and it may be the depressing conditions existing, may make it possible for more teaching work to be done….
