Governorate of Shahrekord and Bakhtiari

 

Confidential and direct

Your Excellency, the Governor General of the Tenth Province

A group of the local residents have written letters of complaint regarding the banishment of the Baha’i residents of Shahrekord, a copy of which is attached for your information.

In order to prevent any incident during the days of Moharam, a few of the Baha’i men were called to appear at the governorate office and were appropriately cautioned. As a result of this action, incidents such as the ones that happened in other parts [of the country], did not occur in Shahrekord at all; also because Mr. Eshraghi, the manager of the [Melli] Bank, went on leave. Although in fulfilling the administrative work he is an organized and decent man, since this fact is true about him [i.e. he is a Baha’i], it is requested that the Melli Central Bank be instructed—now that he is on leave—to prevent him from returning to his positon and to substitute another person in this post.
