Letter of 6 August 1943

6 August 1943
The Master reflects the qualities of the Manifestations as if He were a mirror. He reflects not only those of Bahá’u’lláh but also of Christ as He is the exemplar of the spirit of the Prophet….
…These matters are left to the discretion of the N.S.A. The principle the Guardian has stated … the addition of further regulations and rulings to those already laid down in the bye-laws he strongly discourages; he feels it is better, as far as possible, to settle problems as they arise rather than create too much red tape and hem in the spirit of the Cause into a rigid form.
