Letter of 14 September 1955

To the New Territories Committee

Dear Bahá’í Sister:

In the meantime the Guardian had cabled to the Bonds1 that their return to Franklin was essential, and that his fervent prayers would accompany them.

1.Jameson Bond—first pioneer to the Canadian Arctic (District of Keewatin 1950–53, District of Franklin with Mrs. Gale Bond, 1953–63). They were named Knights of Bahá’u’lláh for Franklin. Jameson served on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Canada 1967–82.  [ Back To Reference]
