Letter of 19 October 1941
To Rosemary Sala1
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
He has been very pleased over recent news of the progress of the teaching work in Canada, and is happy to note that you and your dear husband are again active in spreading the Cause there. He feels sure that your devotion and the added experience gained through your pioneer work in Venezuela will enable you both to contribute richly to the progress of the work in Canada.
Canada must not be allowed to lag behind in the all-important work of the Seven Year Plan. She is a vast and promising country, and is entitled to her full share of spiritual enlightenment, and the Guardian hopes that you will give as much of your time as possible to virgin territories there—aiding in opening them up and establishing nuclei of future Spiritual Assemblies.
He will supplicate the blessings of Bahá’u’lláh for your work, and you will both be remembered in his loving prayers.
With Bahá’í love,
Yours in His service,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-worker:
I wish to assure you of my deepfelt and abiding appreciation
of the noble and exemplary efforts which you and your
dear husband have exerted in recent years, and of the sacrifices
you have made in the path of service to our beloved Faith.
Your true and grateful brother,
