Letter of 27 August 1947

27 August 1947
To the believers who were present in Dublin at the 19 Day Feast of Kamál
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Our beloved Guardian was very happy to receive your message and to see that the Cause is now gaining a firm footing in Eire.
He is particularly happy to welcome Mrs. Coleman into the Faith as the first new Bahá’í in Dublin, and he hopes that ere long you will be able to establish the first historic spiritual Assembly in that city.
The Irish are tenacious in their religious beliefs, and once convinced of the truth and significance of our glorious Faith should make ardent and devoted Bahá’ís.
He assures you all of his loving prayers for the success of your devoted labours.
With warmest greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear and valued co-workers,
Your joint message rejoiced my heart. I cherish great hopes for the future of the work so splendidly initiated in that historic island. I will pray from the depths of my heart for the extension and consolidation of your meritorious activities to which I attach the utmost importance. Persevere in your glorious task, and rest assured that the Beloved, Who is watching over you, will bless your high endeavours and fulfil your dearest hopes.
Your true and grateful brother,
Shoghi 398
