Letter of 25 December 1952

25 December 1952
The Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Oxford
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of December 10th has been received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was very happy to see that you have held another meeting in Manchester College, and hopes that the attracted ones who attended may become real students of the Faith, and eventually join its ranks.
The poem by Miss Masefield was much appreciated by the Guardian. Please assure Miss Masefield that he liked it very much, and will consider using it for a future volume of “Bahá’í World”. The only thing that he saw that seemed to need correction was that the word “Abhá”, was spelled “Abba” instead of “Abhá”.
He hopes that Miss Masefield, through the friendship and 413 wise association of the members of your Group with her, will feel moved to declare herself an active member of the Faith. He will pray that this may come about.
The Guardian will also pray for the success of the devoted labours of the believers in Oxford.
With warm Bahá’í love,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty guide and sustain you always, remove all obstacles from your path, and enable you to win great and memorable victories in the service of His Faith,
Your true brother,
