Letter of 9 September 1950

9 September 1950
To the Glasgow Bahá’ís
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter dated 5.7.50 has been received, and the beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer it on his behalf.
The progress being made in spreading the Faith in Scotland pleases him immensely, and he feels the Cause will find many exemplary and wonderful servants among the Scotch people. They may be slow to be convinced, but once they embrace a thing they do so with full conviction and great determination to serve their belief.
He will pray that your assembly may confirm many new souls, and thus gradually free the devoted pioneers, who went there to teach, for services in new and maybe distant fields.
You may be sure he deeply appreciates all you have done. With loving greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear co-workers,
I was so pleased and grateful to receive your most welcome message, and I profoundly appreciate the noble sentiments you have expressed. I wish to assure you that I will pray for your success from the depths of my heart, that the Beloved may guide your steps, bless your high endeavours, and enable you to lend a tremendous impetus to the spread of the Faith in Scotland.
Your true and grateful brother,
Shoghi 402
