To the maidservant of God, Mrs. Corinne True, Chicago

Upon her be Baha'u'l-Abha!

He is God!

O thou dear maid-servant of God!
The question of the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar is very important and is superior to every matter; surely put forth utmost effort for it.  In the fact that you have registered the name of 'Abdu'l-Baha in the contribution book, I became very happy.

Concerning his honour, M. Mustafa Bagdadi, indeed he was an honourable person, who devoted his days to service in the Kingdom of God, became confirmed in excellent services, a cause of guidance to many, was firm in the Covenant, a promulgator of the Religion of God. Regarding this a comforting letter was written to Zia Effendi.

The receipt you have sent was received.

The following was written by 'Abdu'l-Bahá's own hand at the bottom of the page:

He is God!

O thou daughter of the Kingdom!

Today in America no matter is greater for the elevation of the Word of God than the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar. Surely give it the utmost importance.  I am always waiting that a good report regarding the Mashriqu'l-Adhkar should come.

In most of the cities of Persia, even in some of the villages, a Mashriqu'l-Adhkar has been founded.

Now the beloved in America must make effort to establish one Mashriqu'l-Adhkar.

Upon thee be Bahá'u'l-Abhá.
