Copy of the Letter

[A copy of a letter] addressed to the prime minister and signed by a group of inhabitants of Siahkal has reached the newspaper’s office, announcing that the water distributor of Siahkal, Amin Ostovari, is a Baha’i. He is using the act of irrigation, which is a vital matter, as an instrument for harmful propaganda. They request the dismissal of the above-mentioned. Owing to lack of space, the full text of this letter will be printed in our next edition.
