Letter of 16 December 1955

16 December 1955
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
The beloved Guardian has directed me to write you in connection with the purchase of an endowment for East Africa.
As you know, a contribution has been made by the Hand of the Cause, Mrs. Amelia E. Collins, of One Thousand Dollars for the purchase of the endowment for Kampala. The Guardian feels a small piece of property which can be bought for this One Thousand Dollars should be procured at once, so that this goal of the Ten Year Crusade can be concluded. He feels that you should at once buy a small plot of land in Uganda, at a cost of approximately One Thousand Dollars. The American N.S.A. will remit the funds as you direct.
Will you please let me know just what can be done in connection with this project?
The Guardian sends the members of the National Assembly his loving greetings, and assures them of his prayers in their behalf….
