The Governorate of the Tenth Province,

The reports received from Shahreza indicate that some of the residents have again organized anti-Baha’i meetings.  They met on 2 Khordad 1323 [23 May 1944] in the residence of Mahdavi, the head of the office of the notary public, and by sending a threatening letter to the Governor’s Office of Shahreza, demanded the banishment of the Baha’is.

Hence, the regiment of Shahreza was ordered to send additional re-enforcing military officers to the Governorate Office and the police station. It is requested that you provide necessary instructions from the Governorate Office to prevent any civil disorder.
