Letter of 14 May 1957

14 May 1957
Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Reading
Dear Bahá’í Friends:
Your letter of May 8th has been received, and the beloved Guardian has instructed me to answer you on his behalf.
He was delighted to receive the news of your activities, and feels that Reading can be cited as a truly exemplary community in every way. He hopes you will maintain this enviable position as the years go by.
He will certainly pray that your teaching efforts may be richly blessed, and that you may not only continue to make Bahá’ís, but to export them, as you have done in the case of Edinburgh.
With warm Bahá’í greetings,
[From the Guardian:]
May the Almighty bless your highly valued activities, guide every step you take, remove every obstacle from your path, and graciously assist you to win great victories in the service of His Faith in the days to come,
Your true brother,
Shoghi 419
