Letter of 4 May 1952

4 May 1952
National Bahá’í Youth Committee
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your letter of April 9, 1952, has been received, and the beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was most happy to see that so many of the Bahá’í youth and their friends had gathered together for the Youth Conference; and trusts that, from this consultation, a greater activity amongst the Bahá’í youth of the British Isles will result.
All over the Bahá’í world, we see that not an inconsiderable proportion of the most active and devoted pioneers are young 280 people. This is only right and proper, because they are freer, usually, to migrate to distant lands, embark on new projects, and withstand the trials and hardships, than older people, who have built up family ties and professional ties.
He will pray for all of you, for your success and the deepening of your capacities in the service of Bahá’u’lláh.
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless and sustain you in your meritorious activities and aid you to achieve great victories in the service of His Faith,
Your true brother,
