State News of the Guarded Royal Kingdom

Tehran Government House

Last week we reported that His Majesty the King would be spending a few days in the royal hunting grounds to enjoy the mild weather. He arrived on Tuesday, the last day of Rabi’ath-Thani.

Mohammad Khan Mir Panjeh had brought as prisoners with him some of the well-known accursed and agnostic Babis such as Mulla Mohammad Ali from Khamse. Four of these prisoners who were the sources of sedition and bloodshed and had prompted most of that ill-fated man’s corruptions, including Mir Reza, known as Sardar, along with his attendant, among his most wicked followers, were beheaded at the behest of His Majesty the King on Sunday, 28 Rabi’ath-Thani, at the gallows.
