Letter of 22 February 1947

22 February 1947
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letters dated Sept. 24th, Oct. 1st and Nov. 12th, 1946, have all been received, as well as the interesting reports you enclosed with them, and our beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was delighted to see that such large study classes are being held in Esslingen, and that so many people are becoming students of the Faith. The German believers must concentrate all their efforts on teaching the Cause, as at the present time there are many truth-seekers; in the future it may be more difficult to reach the people.
The Summer School was also a great success this year, and our Guardian was very happy to see so many attended and that the activities of the Bahá’ís are now receiving public approval, after so many years of persecution! 117
You may be sure his loving prayers are offered for the success of your devoted services to the Cause of God….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh sustain, guide and bless your meritorious efforts, aid you to render notable services to our beloved Cause, and consolidate its new-born and God-given institutions,
Your true and grateful brother,
