Letter of 18 February 1947

18 February 1947
To the Bahá’ís of Rostock, Wärnemunde and Schwerin.
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter, dated Rostock Sept. 22nd and Schwerin Sept. 28th, 1946, was received, and it brought great joy to our Guardian’s heart to see the names of so many of the dear friends who are now united and actively serving the Faith in far northern towns! He has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
Now that it is once more possible for you all to meet, he urges you to do so often, and to exert your utmost in spreading the Message of Bahá’u’lláh to those who are seeking the Truth—and there are many of them these days! Likewise, he hopes you will be able to soon have three flourishing Spiritual Assemblies in those towns.
He will pray that this may speedily come about; he will also pray for you all, for your protection and success in all you do for the beloved Faith…
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved bless your efforts, guide you in your devoted labours, aid you to increase your numbers, multiply your institutions, consolidate your accomplishments, and fulfil every desire you cherish for the promotion of His Faith,
Your true and grateful brother,
