Letter of 14 March 1942

14 March 1942
He also approves of the idea of advertising the name “Bahá’í” as widely as possible, as we can never tell at what future date the 439 remembrance of that word may aid some soul to seek and find the Faith.
At present people are too engulfed in hopes, events, desires, and various partizanships, to realise that there is no way out for humanity except to accept the Divine Plan for this Day, and put its healing principles and laws into practice. But gradually their eyes will be opened, and it is for this time that the friends must labour to bring the knowledge of the Cause before as wide a public as possible. September 1942
He (the Guardian) fully realises how much strain you are subjected to, but he also feels that in so far as is compatible with your health you should persevere in all your Bahá’í activities, as your services could ill be spared in any field at this time.
