Letter of 28 June 1926

28 June 1926
Dear Mr. Simpson,
Shoghi Effendi wishes me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated June 22nd, 1926. He is most appreciative of the many and continuous services you are rendering to the Cause in that land. Your efficiency, sincerity and untiring zeal are great assets for the friends in England….
Shoghi Effendi fully approves of your suggestion to put a royalty on the translations of Dr. Esslemont’s book equal to what he had arranged for the original. Not only is that a fair thing to do but also it is incumbent upon us to show our appreciation of Dr. Esslemont’s services to the Cause by safeguarding the interests of his family, especially as his wife is an invalid and in need of help. Shoghi Effendi specially wants me to ask you to show utmost consideration to her interests.
[From the Guardian:]
My dear fellow-worker,
I hope you will assure Mrs. Esslemont on my behalf and express to her my warm approval of your suggestion which would safeguard her interests and prove of some assistance to her….
Assuring you of my earnest prayers for your continued and unsparing efforts for the promotion of the Cause you serve so well,
I am your grateful brother,
Shoghi 55
