June 16, 1937 Doctor Bhagwan S. Gyanee And family, Dear friends: Your letter of May 3rd., at hand for which we are very grateful, we always enjoy any contact with you, your family or your works. The lesson on ‘Meditation’ is a gem and is greatly prized by us. We regret the world at large does not know of such things, surely it should be common practice. We speak of you very often and want you to know we beleive the spirit of Truth walks with you. We are greatly indebted to your labors for the light they have so ably shed on this path through the valley of the shaddow. We shall keep our lamp trimmed and filled, we shall keep it lit and hung in a high place so that other travelers may be guided around the pitfalls on the path to home, that heavenly condition of full attainment where peace surpasses all earthly understanding, where God abides. Some day we may meet again, that is truly a pleasant thought, like a bloom the secret garden hides. And now we pray the prayer the Easterns do, may the peace of Allah abide with you; where e’r you go, where e’r you rest, may the peace of Allah make you blessed. Sincerely your friends, [Signature] Robert and Pearl Fickett, 1530 Vincent Avenue, Norfolk, Va. Dr. Bhagwan S. Gyanee, 43461/2 South Olive St., Los Angeles, California.
