Letter of 8 April 1931

8 April 1931
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to … express his great pleasure for the service you have been rendering the friends by visiting them and telling them of your experiences in Haifa. Those who are privileged to visit the shrines and obtain from it its life-giving spirit, should on their return home, diffuse it among the friends, gladden their heart and thus draw them nearer to the source of all blessing.
You mention in your letter that Mr. Herrigel is becoming conscious of the mistake he has made. He surely ought to have studied the true situation before taking sides and expressing his opinion. This is exactly what I wrote to him on behalf of Shoghi Effendi, but he was blinded by Mrs. White. Anyhow, Shoghi Effendi hopes that as time passes the truth that the Master’s will encloses will more and more dawn upon him and make him repent for his past deeds.
[From the Guardian:]
Convey to the friends in Berlin the expression of my loving appreciation of their devoted endeavours for the promotion of our 18 beloved Cause. May the Beloved bless richly their efforts and enable them to fulfil their heart’s desire.
