Letter of 27 January 1957

27 January 1957
The Bahá’í Group, Eccles
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of January 2nd was received, through the kindness of Mr. Gregory, and the beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He will certainly pray in the Holy Shrines that you may succeed in attaining your objective; but, even should you fail to establish a spiritual assembly by April, you must not feel discouraged, because it is much more important to have a solid foundation in the beginning than to meet a date line—welcome as the assembly would be!
He admires very much the spirit animating you, and hopes that a flourishing community will develop there.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved bless your efforts, guide your steps, aid you to extend the scope of your activities, and win great victories in the service of His glorious Faith,
Your true brother,
