Letter of 12 July 19461

12 July 1946
Dear Bahá’í Brother and Bahá’í Friends:
The Post Card you sent our beloved Guardian on June 3rd reached him, and he was very happy to receive news from you direct and from your dear family and all the Bahá’í friends who were gathered together with you on that day in Neckärgemund.
He hopes you (Dr. Grossmann) received the long letter he forwarded to you (in answer to yours) through Mr. Holley?
The news of the devotion, enthusiasm, and renewed activity of the dear German Bahá’ís is a source of joy to him, and he hopes that the N.S.A. is able to meet often and conduct the affairs of the Faith in that country, where for so long it was banned and persecuted. 52
You may be sure his loving prayers are often offered on your behalf, for the success of your labours to promote the Faith, and for your protection and welfare…
P.S. The Guardian is very anxious to receive reports of the work of the N.S.A. He considers it advisable that during the course of this year any groups which attain nine members should be allowed to form an Assembly at once without waiting until April 21st. in order to encourage the friends after so many years of suppression and suffering.
[From the Guardian:]
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh sustain, guide and bless you in your truly exemplary and meritorious services, aid you to overcome all obstacles in your path, to extend the range of your activities, to proclaim the truths of this glorious Faith to the suffering masses, and to multiply and consolidate its God-given institutions,
Your true and grateful brother,
1. addressed to Dr. Hermann Grossmann, family and Bahá’í friends   [ Back To Reference]
