Letter of 26 February 1957

26 February 1957
Dear Bahá’í Brother:
The Beloved Guardian has directed me to write your Assembly with regard to showing interior views of the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh in slides.
The Guardian read in some minutes, or in a report of one of the Summer Schools, that slides were shown of the Holy Land, and among them one of the interior of the Shrine. He would like to know whether this is the interior Garden, or the Inner Shrine itself, and whose slides they are.
He feels that the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb are so sacred, it is improper for any slides to be shown of the Interiors. Thus, the slide which was shown at the Summer School should be destroyed, and if it forms a part of any sets of views of the Holy Land, this slide be removed from the set.
He sends you his loving Greetings….
