Letter of 8 June 1929

8 June 1929
The beloved of the Lord and the handmaids of the Merciful throughout Europe.
Dearly-beloved friends:
Dr. Yúnís Khán Afrúkhtih, an outstanding figure in the teaching and administrative activities of the believers in Persia, is proceeding to Europe in order to visit the Bahá’í centres and reinforce the bonds of Bahá’í fellowship that unite the East with the West. His mature experience, his wide knowledge of the state of affairs in Persia, his exemplary loyalty and devotion to the Cause, his ability and character eminently qualify him to undertake such a noble task, and I feel confident that his prolonged stay amongst 14 you will prove of the utmost benefit to the interests of our beloved Cause.
I urge every individual believer, and particularly every local Assembly, to endeavour to get into close touch with him, to obtain an insight into the material and spiritual conditions now prevailing in Persia and to seek a clearer understanding of the animating purpose, the distinguishing features and the moving history of the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh.
May his deliberations and intimate companionship with you serve to draw closer the ties that bind the Eastern and Western sections of the Bahá’í World and prepare the way for the ultimate formation of that international body that must guard the unity, and reinforce the strength of the Bahá’í Faith.
Your true brother,
