Intro
We have extracted an english translation of MGA’s announcement of March 20th, 1886.  We got this data from the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 178-179 and 183-184.  This was the second announcement that MGA had published after his 40 days of seclusion.

The Data
“”””In the Announcement of February 20, 1886 made by this humble one…there is a prophecy of the birth of a righteous son possessing the qualities mentioned in the announcement.…
Such a son, according to the divine promise, will surely be born within nine years, soon or late, but certainly within this period.”””

[Announcement of March 22, 1886, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 113]

____________________________________________________________________________________________
“”””This is not just a prophecy. Indeed, it is a grand heavenly Sign which Almighty God has shown for demonstrating the truth and greatness of the noble, compassionate and merciful Prophet, Muhammad, the Chosen One, peace and blessings of Allah be on him and his people. This Sign is hundreds of times greater and better and more perfect and more exalted and more complete than bringing a dead person back to life. To bring a dead one to life merely means to bring a spirit back to life by supplication to God…the possibility of which many critics question….

In this instance, God the Almighty has, through His great grace and benevolence and through the blessings of Hadrat Khatamul-Anbiya’ [the Seal of the Prophets], peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and his people, by accepting the supplications of this humble one, promised to send such a blessed spirit whose manifest and hidden blessings will spread throughout the
earth. It might on the surface appear like bringing to life a dead person but this Sign is hundreds of times better than reviving a dead. Only the soul of the dead is revived through supplication and here, too, a soul has been sought through supplication. But what a tremendous difference there is between those souls and this soul.”””

[Announcement of Monday, March 22, 1886, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 114–115]
