Letter of 25 December 1951

25 December 1951
Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Oxford
Dear Friends:
Your letter of December 14th has been received; and the beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf. 412
He was very pleased to hear of the progress being made; and that it has been possible to give the Message to some of the “undergrads”. It is most important that the Faith should be conveyed with a sense of dignity at so important a university as Oxford; and better that the work should go forward slowly than that any mistakes should be made.
He assures you all that he deeply appreciates your devoted labours; and he hopes that you will fulfill your objective of increasing the number of believers there.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Beloved, whose Cause you are serving with such fidelity, ability and devotion, reward you abundantly for your meritorious labours, guide every step you take, and enable you to lay a firm and unassailable foundation for the future institutions of His Faith in that historic and promising City.
Your true and grateful brother,
