Letter of 28 March 1950

28 March 1950
National Bahá’í Teaching Committee, England
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your letter of January 12th, written by Mr. Hainsworth, was received, as well as the material enclosed, and our beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was glad to learn the Manchester Conference was such a success, and appreciated the very generous offer of Mr. Leach (see endnote) . If the believers all over the world were animated by such a spirit, there would scarcely be any necessity for “Plans”.
These days, as Riḍván approaches, his anxious thoughts are with not only the British community, but other Bahá’í communities in different parts of the world. He longs to see them fully achieve their goals; for to do something for God 100 per cent has an attractive power, and brings future Divine confirmations.
His ardent prayers are with you all, you may be sure….
[From the Guardian:]
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh sustain and guide you in your historic labours, aid you to extend the range of your splendid achievements, consolidate the victories you have won, and lend a still greater impetus to the progress and expansion of your unforgettable accomplishments.
Your true and grateful brother,
Shoghi 240
