Letter of 10 July 1937

10 July 1937
Dear Mr. Hofman,
I am charged by our beloved Guardian to acknowledge the receipt of your communications of May 3rd and 29th written on behalf of the British N.S.A.
The enclosed copy of the Annual Report, as well as the minutes of the N.S.A. meeting of the 13th May have also reached him and he has read their contents with deepest satisfaction.
With regard to your Assembly’s request for permission to publish in the “Bahá’í Journal” an extract from his letter of April 24th addressed to Miss Baxter (see endnote) , he wishes you to assure your fellow members of his approval of their request.
With his loving Bahá’í greetings and with his renewed and abiding appreciation of your labours for the Cause….
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-worker,
Your letter of June 24th has also been received. I feel the urge to add these few words in person in order to assure you afresh of my deep appreciation of the remarkable spirit of constancy, devotion and loyalty which you and your fellow workers, in both the teaching and administrative spheres of Bahá’í service are ably and continually manifesting. My heart overflows with unspeakable gratitude. I will continue to pray for all of you from the depths of my heart.
