Letter of 7 December 1954

7 December 1954
The Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Oxford
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
Your letter of November 30th with enclosure has been 415 received by the beloved Guardian, and he has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
The news of the opening of the Oxford Bahá’ís’ first Centre rejoiced his heart. He was particularly happy to know that this project was consummated and the Centre furnished and made ready for use almost entirely through the united efforts and devotion of the believers themselves.
As you know, the Guardian attaches great importance to Oxford. Now that the friends have a Centre, which in itself will be a means of attracting seeking souls to them to learn of the Faith; and also the Bahá’ís have made for themselves a teaching plan, he feels confident that the work will go forward there with great strides, and that your community will grow in numbers and in strength.
He will remember you all in his loving prayers in the Holy Shrines.
With loving Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless continually your highly meritorious efforts, and enable you to win great and memorable victories in the service of His Faith,
Your true brother,
