Letter of 19 September 1951

19 September 1951 1
Dear Bahá’í Brother,
Your letter of August 27th has been received, and the beloved Guardian is sending you herein his receipt for the contribution of the British Bahá’ís to the Shrine. He noted with interest and appreciation that the Bank raised no objections to the transfer of this sum for such a purpose, and feels this indicates the slowly growing recognition of the Faith’s nature and importance. Your own ever devoted services to the Cause are greatly appreciated by him, you may be sure….
[From the Guardian:]
I gratefully acknowledge the receipt of the sum of three hundred pounds from the Bahá’ís of the British Isles, to be expended for the construction of the Shrine of the Báb on Mt. Carmel.
1. To the Treasurer for this special fund—Arthur Norton (see endnote) .   [ Back To Reference]
