Letter of 16 September 1955

16 September 1955
Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Cardiff
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your letter of July 18th with enclosure has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He is delighted with the way the work is progressing in Cardiff, and that there are now nine believers living there.
He particularly values the instant decision made during the Convention, and consequent action taken, by Dr. Miller (see endnote) in leaving an excellent medical practice in Liverpool, to settle in Cardiff, with all it entailed of sacrifice in being separated from his wife, and in being obliged to accept a junior post in a hospital at Cardiff. It is qualities such as these, which the pioneer carries 396 to his new post, which attract a reinforcing power from on High, and enable him to create in the hearts of those who meet him a longing to have what he possesses, and ignite in these new hearts the flame of the love of Bahá’u’lláh.
The Guardian feels sure his non-Bahá’í wife will likewise receive a blessing for her part in this sacrifice, which helped to make this move possible.
He is deeply appreciative of the Welsh translation; and is confident it will prove to be of great assistance in the promotion of the Teachings in Wales.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Spirit of Bahá’u’lláh guide you and your fellow-members, and enable you, in the days to come, to reinforce the foundation that has been laid, and to extend the range of your highly meritorious exertions and accomplishments,
Your true brother,
