The Splendour of God, by Eric Hammond, [1909], at

Revealed by Baha‘u‘llah, at Akka.
Translated by Ali Kuli Khan.

"As to the meaning of the Cause of Baha‘u‘llah: know that whatever there is which has to do with the Universal Good, is divine—and whatever is divine is, certainly, for the universal good. If it is true, it is for all; if not, it is for no one. Therefore a Divine Cause of Universal Good cannot be limited either to the East or to the West; for the radiance of the Sun of Truth illumines both the East and the West, and it makes its heat felt in the South as in the North; there is no difference between one pole and the other."

From The Tablet of Ishraket Baha‘u‘llah.
