Letter of 19 October 1936

19 October 1936
The Guardian has received the letter you had written him on behalf of the Esslingen Assembly and dated September 27th, and wishes you to convey to your fellow-members in that body his thanks and appreciation, and his gratitude for the sentiments they had expressed to him through you. He very deeply values the assurances of love, loyalty and devotion you have given him, and is ardently praying that Bahá’u’lláh may abundantly reward you for all these evidences of your undying attachment to His Cause.
The Guardian wishes me also to extend his grateful thanks and his hearty congratulations to your Assembly and to the community of believers in Esslingen for the unprecedented success that has crowned your efforts in connection with the organization of this year’s session of the German Bahá’í Summer School. He is praying from the bottom of his heart for your continued guidance throughout the succeeding years…
[From the Guardian:]
Dear co-workers:
I am deeply moved by the remarkable evidences of zeal and of activity manifested by the believers of Esslingen. My heart is filled 41 with unspeakable gratitude. Persevere in your efforts and rest assured.
Your true brother,
