April 7th in Baha'i History


1887: Horace Holley, prominent Bahá’í and Hand of the Cause is born in Torrington, Connecticut


1922 - The Greatest Holy Leaf Reporsts the Guardian has left the Holy Land to recuperate.

He appointed a body of nine people to act tentatively as an Assembly and we find that on April 7,1922, this body enters in its records that a letter has been received from the Greatest Holy Leaf in which she states that "the Guardian of the Cause of God, the Chosen Branch, the Leader of the people of Baha, Shoghi Effendi, under the weight of sorrows and boundless grief, has been forced to leave here for a while in order to rest and recuperate, and then return to the Holy Land to render his services and discharge his responsibilities." (Ruhiyyih Khanum, The Guardian of the Baha'i Faith, p. 19)
