To Charles Murray1

Beloved Bahá’í Brother,

Shoghi Effendi hopes that Mrs. Emeric Sala’s2 visit to your centre will serve to impart to your heart a fresh encouragement, as well as a more powerful incentive to carry on your work for the Cause.

1.Charles Murray—native of Montreal who became a Bahá’í in Washington, D.C., and lived in Prince Edward Island 1932–42.  [ Back To Reference]
2.Emeric and Rosemary Sala—members of the National Spiritual Assembly 1948–53. During the first and second Seven Year Plans, they pioneered to Venezuela (1940–41) and travelled throughout Latin America. In 1953 they pioneered to South Africa, and returned to Canada in 1968. In 1971 they pioneered to Mexico, where Rosemary died in 1980. Emeric passed away in 1990. See The Bahá’í World Vol. XVIII, 713–715, and Vol. XX, In Memoriam.  [ Back To Reference]
