Letter of 14 August 1953

14 August 1953

To an individual believer

Dear Bahá’í Sister:

The Guardian was indeed happy to hear of the visit made to you recently by dear Fred Schopflocher,1 and of the warm love he carried to you from the Guardian, and of the happiness and inspiration he brought you in his own loving spirit.

1.Siegfried Schopflocher—known as the “Temple Builder” because of his great contributions to the completion of the first Mashriqu’l-Adhkár of the West, appointed a Hand of the Cause of God in 1952, died in Montreal in 1953. For a review of his “numerous, magnificent services” see The Bahá’í World Vol. XII,664–666, In Memoriam.  [ Back To Reference]
