Messages to the Antipodes

Communications to the Bahá’í communities of Australasia—2nd edition

The Guardian's humility, his spirit of servitude, the openness of his heart and mind, and the power of his voice, permeate his correspondence, constantly urging the friends to arise and, in so doing, to turn to 'Abdu'l-Bahá as their guide and refuge while perceiving himself as but their "devoted brother and co-worker".
