In the letter, the 2nd Khalifa reminded Maulvi Sahib of his purpose for travelling to Japan. The 2nd Khalifa stated that once there, he would face many difficulties such as financial difficulties and advised to always remain steadfast, and to continuously seek Gods help and have firm faith in Him. The 2nd Khalifa advised to keep up to date with the current affairs of Japan and to continuously, on a daily basis, read their newspapers.
