Enemies of Ebtehaj

Following Mr Falsafi’s[1] [statements] about some Baha’i personages, a few people evidently brought to his attention [that he should] name Mr. Abol-Hasan Ebtehaj, too; however, it was prevented due to the influence of one of the cabinet ministers. It is possible that the length of Mr. Ebtehaj’s trip was longer than had been planned. It has been some time since Mr. Ebtehaj dismissed engineer Behbahani, the nephew of the Grand Ayatollah Behbahani, from work.
