Letter of 3 July 1948

3 July 1948
He does not think that we can yet go so far as to write commentaries and lengthy treatises on the relation of the Bahá’í teachings to Education, Economics, etc, as the world knows these subjects at present. We have our basic principles, but … (unreadable) We cannot say in detail what the “Bahá’í” system will be. It has yet to grow and mature. However, articles on these matters, where our 78 general ideas are correlated to present knowledge and usage, and compared, would be good because not too much detail could be gone into.
