Letter of Hamparzoum Sarkisian

The esteemed newspaper Karzar

Since the (Hamparzoum) tailor’s shop was mentioned in a column that explained about the Baha’i sect in the recent issue number 383 of the Karzar newspaper, it is necessary to explain that Hamparzoum Sarkisian is the private tailor of His Imperial Majesty, and almost all the famous people of Tehran know that he is a respected Armenian from Tehran and the members of his family are Christian Armenians.

The manager of the tailor shop was also an Armenian women, who married a Muslim about one or two years ago, and she does not have any other property except a house on Shahreza Street.
