Letter of 23 April 1955

23 April 1955

To individual believers

Dear Bahá’í Friends:

He suggests that you get in touch with Mr. John Robarts,1 and discuss with him the possibility of ... getting a job in Bechuanaland, a difficult territory, and where there are only the Robarts pioneering at present.

1.John and Audrey Robarts—John was a member of the National Spiritual Assembly from 1948–53. In 1953 they became Knights of Bahá’u’lláh when they pioneered to Bechuanaland. In 1957 John Robarts was appointed a Hand of the Cause of God. He passed away in Rawdon, Quebec in 1991. See The Bahá’í World Vol. XX, In Memoriam.  [ Back To Reference]
