234 [?]Among the heads of governmental offices, no one shows themselves to be a Baha’i.  Only Alaie, the Supervisor of Abadeh’s Governorate Office, is officially a Baha’i; a fact which has produced sound and fury.  [He was] forced to go to Shiraz.  A request has been made to the Governor General’s Office--number 259- 9 Khordad 1323 [30 May 1944]--to issue an order [for the employment of] another [individual].

 

Governor of Abadeh,

Arefi
