The Governorate of Shahrekord,

As it has been observed, a number of Baha’is from different areas have recently moved to this place and soon they will be forming their Assembly. Reportedly, their leadership lies with Mr. Eshraghi, the Manager of the Bank-e Melli. Since such institutions mislead the commoners and the illiterate [people], it is possible that this will gradually lead to unwarranted events. A few nights ago, the police headquarters identified their gathering place. It is requested that the government officials take the proper actions and arrange for the return of others, such as such as Raika, the carpenter; Ghalili, the tinsmith and his brother; Yahya Shamma’i and others…to their original localities.
