My Dear, Loyal Brothers!
Of these two copies, one is mine and one is the governor’s. Correct the governor’s copy according to the copy that has my handwriting on it. While studying The Supreme Sign this time, I saw that the Second Station until the end, and the ‘conversation’ at the end, were of the greatest importance, and I profited from them enormously. One of you should read and the other listen, so that you can profit too. In addition to doing the corrections, our brothers should not remain idle, but should study in pairs.
Secondly: My copy of the Tenth Word, the notebook here containing letters, and the rest should not get lost nor remain idle. I am leaving it to Ceylan to supervise this.

While reading Jaljalutiya now, it was imparted to me the moment this question occurred to me: “I wonder what the relationship is between sura thumma nun in the phrase Bi-haqqi tabaraka thumma nun wa sa’il, at the twenty-sixth degree, which indicates the Treatise On Divine Determining?” I saw when reading the start of that Sura, Nun. By the pen and by the [record] which men write,1 that it is the word Nun that is the origin, basis, pre-eternal source, and eternal master of all pens, writing, and books, and indicates the pen of Divine Determining, and light, and the light of pre-eternal knowledge. That is, just as By the [winds] that scatter broadcast2 looks to the Treatise On Minute Particles with a powerful relation inferring an indication, so does the word Nun look to the Treatise On Divine Determining with a powerful indication.
