O thou who art steadfast in the Covenant! The letter dated the last day of the month of Dhi’l-Qa‘dih hath arrived, its contents charged with firmness and steadfastness in the Covenant of the Wronged One.
Concerning the correction of the book of that Christian person,1 shouldst thou be successful in this matter, it would be a great achievement, and a most necessary one. If and when he writeth the book he now hath in mind, let him then bring it with him. Pictures of the sites of ‘Akká have been drawn in America, and printed and disseminated there. We will send thee a copy thereof, so that thou mayest give it to him.
We beseech God graciously to grant a cure to Áqá Músá.
For the rest, convey to all the friends a most wondrous Abhá greeting.
