Letter of 9 May 1936

9 May 1936
Dear Mr. Hofman (see endnote) ,
The Guardian has duly received your letter of April 29th written at the direction of the N.S.A. of the British Isles, and he wishes me to thank you for it.
He has learned with deep satisfaction of the result of your national elections, and has instructed me to convey to each and every member of your newly elected assembly his hearty congratulations and sincere good wishes. He hopes that the officers of the N.S.A. will be fully guided in the discharge of their manifold and heavy responsibilities, and that through their collective and sustained efforts the Cause will receive a fresh and unprecedented impetus throughout England. He is praying from the very depth of his heart on behalf of you all, entreating Bahá’u’lláh to ever bless, sustain and guide you in your labours.
The Guardian would deeply appreciate receiving the minutes of the N.S.A. meetings, and hopes that you will send these to him as regularly as you can.
With his renewed and most loving greetings, also to the members of the N.S.A….
[From the Guardian:]
Wishing you the fullest success in your high and deeply appreciated endeavours,
Your true brother,
Shoghi 109
