Letter of 26 December 1935

26 December 1935
Dear Mrs. Slade,
This letter is to confirm the one I wrote you nearly two weeks ago at the direction of the Guardian regarding the projected World Congress of Faiths to be held in London next summer.
As stated in that letter, the Guardian has whole-heartedly accepted the Committee’s invitation, as expressed through both Sir Herbert Samuel and Sir Francis Younghusband, to have the Cause authoritatively represented at the above-mentioned Congress.
He now wishes to urge again your N.S.A. to speed up the matter of preparing the address which he has requested Mr. Townshend to prepare for that occasion. He is also urging Mr. Townshend to have the address ready for presentation to the Committee towards the end of next January.
The Guardian hopes that the N.S.A. will do its very best to speed up this matter.
With his renewed thanks to you and to the friends, Yours in His Service,
