I, Seyyedeh Khanum Heyrani, [wife of] Babollah Tebyanian, in accordance with the ordinances of the Baha’i Faith, have married, and informed the relevant authorities on 21 Azar 1318 [13 December 1939]. The public prosecutor of Semnan summoned us, and after interrogation and owing to fanatical prejudices, the public prosecutor ordered and demanded 4,000 rials bond for [the release of] my husband.  He did not accept an official guarantor, and since I am unable to pay the bond due to financial difficulties, I request the bond to be changed to an official guarantor and that [my husband] be released.
