Letter of 14 December 1956

14 December 1956
Dear Bahá’í Brother:
The Beloved Guardian has directed me to write to your Assembly, with regard to the Tristan da Cunha Island.
Earlier in the Ten Year Crusade, one of the English Bahá’ís offered to settle in this Island, in order to establish the Faith there. At that time, the Guardian felt we must concentrate on the goals of the Crusade only. Now, however, the Friends have won so many victories, and the goals of the Crusade are being gained currently, early in the Crusade, he feels supplementary areas may be settled—and for that matter, supplementary activities engaged in.
Thus, if this friend still wishes to settle in the Island of Tristan da Cunha, he would welcome it being done.
If only the home front would surge ahead, then the Crusade would surely be moving ahead of the schedule. Let us pray those at home will arise with the same dedication, and consecration as the valiant pioneers, causing a new life to be manifest on all home fronts.
The Guardian sends the members of your Assembly his loving greetings….
