Letter of 5 January 1949 (Summer School)

5 January 1949 (Summer School)
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your loving message, sent to our beloved Guardian from the 8th Summer School of Esslingen, was received, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was very glad to see dear Mr. Remey had been present at that occasion, as he is a faithful and devoted old believer, and has been serving the Cause since its earliest inception in the West.
He urges you all to concentrate your efforts on the all-important work of teaching the Cause and spreading it to new centers.
You may be sure he will pray for you all in the Holy Shrines, and for the success of your labours…. 145
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless your meritorious efforts, guide and sustain you in your valued activities, enable you to deepen continually your knowledge of the fundamentals of His Faith, and lend a tremendous impetus to the advancement of its new-born institutions,
Your true and grateful brother,
