This is a copy of the letter sent to Mr. Misaghian through city Post on 30/01/1323 [19 April 1944]:

 

It has been heard that you are a follower of the baseless Baha’i Faith. In view of the fact that our religious duty advises us to avoid exposing those types of accusations and uncover anyone’s secrets to the extent that we can,  we therefore warn you through this letter that if this report is not true, you should declare your hatred towards this faith [Baha’i Faith] as soon as possible by publishing [a statement to that effect] in a newspaper, and if God forbid, you are suffering from this contagious disease, you should immediately close your shop and migrate from this city, otherwise you and your properties will be in danger.

 

On behalf of Jameyyat-e Tarafdaran-e Din
