Letter of 19 January 1950

19 January 1950
Northampton Bahá’í Community
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Our beloved Guardian thanks you not only for the good news you conveyed to him in your letter of January 6th, but for the spirit which prompted you to share it with him.
He admires greatly the services of your community and the unity amongst you, which no doubt is largely responsible for your success.
He will join his prayers to yours for the success of the labours of your two latest pioneering members.
With Bahá’í love,
[From the Guardian:]
Dear co-workers,
I feel truly proud of your notable services, and I wish to assure you of my profound appreciation of your labours, of my loving prayers for the progress of your meritorious activities, and the realisation of every 408 hope you cherish in the service of our beloved Faith and of its nascent institutions.
Your true and grateful brother,
