Letter of 7 February 1957

7 February 1957

To the Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Ottawa

Dear Bahá’í Sister:

He was very happy to hear of the response of the Ottawa Community to the messages which Miss Winnifred Harvey1 conveyed to them. It makes a great difference to make the personal contact of a returning pilgrim, and the Guardian feels sure that many of the friends would arise and do pioneer work if they grasped the privilege and the importance of it. The contact with a visitor from Haifa is naturally a vivid experience, and he feels sure will be a great stimulation to not only the Ottawa friends but others.

1.Winnifred Harvey—member of the National Spiritual Assembly 1950–61, passed away in Haifa in 1990.  [ Back To Reference]
