Letter of 25 January 1929

25 January 1929
Manchester Spiritual Assembly My Dear Friend,
I am directed by our Guardian to thank you for your welcome letter of January 11th.
He has been very pleased to learn of the more rapid progress of the Cause in Manchester and of a greater measure of unity among the friends. He is glad that Mr. Hall is taking this initiative and he sincerely trusts that you will all persevere in your endeavours, will keep dear the necessity for harmony and unity and thus make your group a progressive, enthusiastic and worthy Bahá’í centre in England. He appreciated your efforts and that of all friends in Manchester. He wishes you please to convey to them an expression of his heartfelt love and good wishes.
With best regards, Sincerely in His Service,
[From the Guardian:]
My Dear co-worker,
I am delighted with the news you give me. The friends in Manchester occupy a warm and abiding place in my heart. The fragrant memory of my visit to them is still fresh and vivid in my mind. I will continue to supplicate at the Beloved’s Shrine for each one of them the Almighty’s richest blessings, that they may be guided and strengthened to render in the days to come inestimable services to the sacred Threshold.
With my best wishes to your dear relatives,
Your true brother,
