[Copy of the letter from Aran Alderman]


To the esteemed Governor of the City of Kashan


We respectfully convey the following: [In regard to] the report of 29/3/1324 [19 June 1945], you came to Aran village and resolved the issues with the utmost equanimity, thus providing for the serenity of the residents in every aspect.  Subsequently, two gendarmes [police officers] came here again and publicly proclaimed that martial law was to be established, and no one had the right of passage until  4:00in the night[1].  But since most of the residents of this village are farmers and have to go to their farms during the night , we appeal to you to, if possible, order the termination of this [martial law,[ so that the farmers may be free to work and pray for you.  With offering of the highest respect.


Official Alderman of Aran, Sharif
