Letter of 24 March 1946

24 March 1946

To Emeric Sala1

Dear Bahá’í Brother,

The many valuable services you are rendering the Faith—through your book, 2 your teaching trips, and your local Bahá’í work—are very deeply appreciated by him, and he rejoices to see you and your dear wife toiling so faithfully in the service of our beloved Cause. In this connection he wishes to thank you for the copies of your book which you sent him and which he placed in various Bahá’í libraries here.
