Letter of 5 September 1950

5 September 1950
Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Liverpool
Dear Bahá’í Friends,
Your letter dated May 7 was received, and our beloved Guardian rejoiced over the news of the formation of your Assembly. He would have answered you sooner had he not been so overpowered with not only the work connected with the arcade of the Shrine’s completion, but also anxiety caused by the long and serious illness of Mr. Maxwell, its architect.
He trusts your Assembly will enlarge its community during this year, and thus strengthen its foundations and ensure its future activities. 403
The victory won in the British Isles filled his heart with pride, and encourages him to believe a brilliant future lies ahead of the community there.
With warmest greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear co-workers:
Your most welcome message cheered my heart, and I wish to assure you in person of my sincere and profound admiration for the spirit that animates you in your activities, as well as of my ardent prayers for you, that the Beloved may guide and sustain you always, and enable you to win great and memorable victories for His Faith and its infant institutions.
Your true brother,
