Letter of 28 June 1947

28 June 1947
National Youth committee
Dear Bahá’í Sister,
Your letter, with enclosures, to our Beloved Guardian, on behalf of the National Youth Committee, and dated February 26th, was received and he has instructed me to answer it on his behalf. He did not reply sooner because he is so very busy and overworked, and feels sure you understand the reason for the delay.
The services which the Bahá’í young people are rendering the Cause, not only in England but in Scotland and in Eire, please him greatly, as the Youth are the ones who perforce, in the near 203 future, will find themselves carrying on the administrative and teaching work of the Faith, and the sooner they prepare themselves for this heavy responsibility through actual experience in the pioneer field, the better.
He is delighted to see the steady progress of your activities and the way your Bulletin is progressing, and he assures you all of his loving prayers for the success of all your undertakings….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved bless continually your meritorious efforts, guide and sustain you in your activities, and aid you to fulfil your heart’s desire in the service of His glorious Faith.
Your true brother,
