Letter of 10 June 19481

10 June 1948
Unfortunately conditions here in Palestine were so disturbed and disorganized that the Guardian could not send a message as you requested, to the Esperanto Congress in Munich in May. He has been, and is, as you can well imagine, very concerned over the state of the Holy Land. But so far all has gone well, the Shrines have been protected, and the Bahá’í Community respected here and assisted, by the new authorities.
It seems as if some time must elapse before pilgrims from anywhere can again visit here. But he hopes, at a future date, your heart’s desire will be granted and you will be able to come to Haifa.
Unfortunately the American National Spiritual Assembly has such a very heavy program to carry out at present, in the teaching field and in the decoration of the Temple, that many other projects must wait until more money is available. Printing Bahá’í Literature is one of them. But he hopes in the near future some new editions can be gotten out.
