To Miss Juliet Thompson

To the attracted maid-servant of God, Miss Juliet Thompson. Upon her be Bahá'u'l-Abhá!

He is God!

O thou daughter of the Kingdom!

Thy letter was received and its contents became evident.

If America attains to the capacity of the Presence of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, I will travel to that country and all the difficulties shall be solved.

There is no doubt that the tests are severe. The more a soul resists and shows firmness and steadfastness, the greater will be his progress, and he shall soar to the sublimest heights of the Kingdom. ...

O thou daughter of the Kingdom! Thou hast expressed the hope of my Presence in America. It depends upon capacity and merit.

O thou who art attracted to the fragrances of God! Endeavour thou as far as thou canst to become the cause of the unity and harmony amongst the believers of God....

Announce on my behalf to Mrs. MacNutt "I do not forget thee and my beloved friend, Mr. McNutt, for one breath; nay, rather, I beg continually for your divine confirmations and supreme assistance." ...

(Signed) 'Abdu'l-Bahá Abbas
