Letter of 2 July 1934

2 July 1934
Dear Mrs. Slade,
Shoghi Effendi is pleased to learn, from your letters of June 11th and 16th, of the new possibilities for the publication of Canon Townshend’s book. Realising the number and force of the difficulties which have thus far stood in your way, he cannot indeed but feel gratified that you have at last been able to overcome some of them. He hopes that through your determination to have this valuable booklet published without any further delay some valuable and permanent result will be achieved, and that a few people of capacity and influence will be attracted to the Faith.
In case no publishing firm accepts your offer for the printing of the booklet, the Guardian approves that the N.S.A. should undertake the publication.
Hoping to hear very soon some more definite and encouraging news about this matter, and with the Guardian’s best wishes for you and for your collaborators in the N.S.A.
Yours in His Service, 95
[From the Guardian:]
With the renewed assurance of my loving and continued prayers for the success of your unsparing efforts for the spread of His Faith and the consolidation of its institutions,
Your true brother,
