May I be your ransom!

Yesterday, after I left your blessed presence and returned home, a friend who had received a telegram from Isfahan came to yours truly and discussed its contents, which was extremely touching and harrowing. Since the message is of special importance, and delays in preventing the wicked [activity] in Shahreza might lead to riots and perilous consequences, according to your own blessed instructions, I must bring the matter immediately to your attention.

Therefore, I am conveying the matter in a separate sheet of [paper] for you to act as you deem appropriate and issue the necessary instructions to the relevant authorities to stop the persecutions and prevent the plot against a group of the sincere and honest subjects of the nation in Shahreza.


Yours sincerely,
