Notes This document is online in a variety of formats at The PDF copy below has been stripped of blank pages, and the text copy has been only partially corrected. See also Illustrated description of a design in the Persian-Indian style of architecture for the first Mashrak-el-Azkar to be erected in America (1920).

While Remey later broke the covenant (see uhj_mason_remey_followers), at the time he wrote this book he was an influential figure in the Baha'i community and was later appointed Hand of the Cause. This document is thus not "covenant-breaker" material.
