Letter of 10 June 19481

10 June 1948
Your letters to our beloved Guardian … were received, as well as the report of the persecution of the German Bahá’ís, and the greetings from the Teaching conference, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was very pleased to receive all the good news you conveyed to him, and the love and devotion with which you and your dear husband and family serve the Cause of God is a source of great comfort to him.
He would have answered you before, but pressure of work, and the recent very disturbed state of the country, has held up his correspondence. He hopes this letter will reach you safely.
The progress being made by the Faith in Germany is excellent. It is if at last the Cause were let out of the cage and can spread its 76 wings there and fly—and the hearts of the German people are a very rich field in which to sow the Divine Seeds. He has always foreseen for Germany a great future in the Bahá’í world…
He was particularly glad to hear the working people, the backbone of every nation, are receptive to the Cause and being taught.
