Letter of 10 August 1932

10 August 1932
Your touching words of condolence and sympathy in connection with the sudden removal of the Greatest Holy Leaf from our midst have greatly comforted (the Guardian’s) aching heart and relieved the burden of sorrow that lies so heavily upon him.
In this great calamity which has seized the entire body of the followers of the Faith in both East and West our Guardian’s loss is the greatest and the most cruel. His sole comfort, at this terrible hour, is to see the friends united and working together for the realisation of our departed Khánum’s dearest wishes.
