From Tabriz, Decoded telegram of Mr. Dadvar

 

Office of the Prime Minister

 

Key 1[?]: In Ardabil, someone by the name of Sheikh Reza has insulted the Baha’is from the pulpit. They brought him to Tabriz. I counselled and advised him, yet I observed that it did not have any effect on him. I decided to keep him in Tabriz until the end of Ramadan in order to prevent unrest in Ardabil. 436.

 

Dadvar,

12 Shahrivar 1323 [3 September 1944]
