Letter of 3 October 1957

3 October 1957

To an individual believer

Dear Bahá’í Brother:

Your Committee was fortunate indeed to have had a visit from the revered Hand of the Cause, Mr. Khadem.1 He is truly one who kindles a new flame of love and longing to serve the Cause in the hearts of the believers wherever he goes.

With warm Bahá’í greetings,

R. Rabbani

[From the Guardian:]

May the Almighty bless, guide and sustain you, and enable you to promote effectively the vital interests of His Faith,

Your true brother,
