Letter of 24 January 1934

24 January 1934 1
Dear Bahá’í Friend,
At the request of the Guardian I am sending you enclosed the programme of “The New Commonwealth”, a society for the promotion of international law and order, having its headquarters in London, and which seems to have a wide and well selected membership. The Guardian wishes the British N.S.A. to consider the possibility of their joining this organisation, and to carefully investigate whether any affiliation with that body involves any political allegiance or may indirectly and eventually lead to participation in any form of political activity. In the contrary case, he strongly advises the N.S.A. to join that organisation, as he feels that in this way the friends can give a wide and effective publicity to the teachings of the Cause. Membership in non-political organisations of this type is, indeed, the best method of teaching indirectly the Message by making useful and frequent contacts with well-known and influential persons who, if not completely won to the Faith, can at least become of some effective use to it.
Trusting that you are in the best of health, and with the assurance of Shoghi Effendi’s ardent prayers on your behalf and on behalf of all the friends in London.
Yours in His Service,
1. Addressed to Mrs. Slade.   [ Back To Reference]
