"OH THAT I COULD TRAVEL, EVEN THOUGH ON FOOT AND IN THE UTMOST POVERTY, TO THESE REGIONS, AND, RAISING THE CALL OF "YA BAHA 'U' L-ABHA" IN THE CITIES, VILLAGES, MOUNTAINS, DESSERTS AND OCEANS, PROMOTE THE DIVINE TEACHING! THIS, ALAS, I CAN NOT DO. HOW INTENSELY I DEPLORE IT! PLEASE GOD, YE MAY ACHIEVE IT." --- ABDU'L-BAHA

THE TEACHING OF THE CAUSE, WINNING AND CONFIRMING THE SOULS, WAS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO ABDU'L-BAHA AND THE HOLY FRIENDS. THEY ENDURED THE UTMOST DIFFICULTIES IN THIS WORLD. I PRAY WE WILL ALL BE RESPECTFUL OF THESE MOST PRECIOUS VIDEOS, AND MAY THEY BE USED TO QUICKEN, ATTRACT AND STRENGTHEN THE BAHA'I FRIENDS IN THE COVENANT OF GOD. I BELIEVE THIS WOULD MAKE THE MASTER, VERY, VERY HAPPY. EVEN IF TEN THOUSAND DISRESPECT, BUT ONE PRECIOUS SOUL IS DRAWN NIGH TO THE WARMTH OF BAHA'U'LLAH, THAT ONE SOUL IS WORTH IT, AND I BELIEVE ABDUL'-BAHA, HAS ENDURED WORSE THINGS IN HIS TEACHING OF THE CAUSE OF GOD. THESE VIDEOS SHOULD REACH ALL SOULS IN THE MOST DISTANT LANDS, CONFIRM THEM IN THE LOVE OF THE MASTER. AND DRAW THEM NEARER TO BAHA'U;LLAH. IN THIS WAY, ABDU'L-BAHA'S PRAYER TO TRAVEL AND PROCLAIM THE GREATEST NAME, IS NOW ANSWERED.

THE ONLY INFORMATION I HAVE IS THAT ONE LOCAL SPIRITUAL ASSEMBLY SENT THIS AS AN AYYAM-I-HA PRESENT TO ANOTHER LOCAL SPIRITUAL ASSEMBLY IN THE SOUTHERN STATES IN AMERICA. I THINK SOMEWHERE AROUND ALABAMA AND/OR MISSISSIPPI/LOUISIANA
