1934-01-29 re Persian youth traveling w/o credentials
USBN #82 - April 1934 - page 4
"I am directed by Shoghi Effendi to inform you that Mr. Yadullah Mobasser,
to whom you have referred in your note dated Jan. 9th, came last February to Haifa
and met the Guardian, and shortly after left for Europe. Having no recommendation
whatever from any Assembly in Persia, Shoghi Effendi insisted that he should
obtain a recommendation if he wished to meet and associate with the friends. He
apparently failed to follow the Guardian's instructions on this point, and had the
Paris Assembly or Madame Dreyfus-Barney been informed of that, they would have
certainly refused to give him any letter of introduction.
"The Guardian, wishing, therefore, to stress the necessity for every Baha'i
to abide by this important principle of the Administration, requests you to inform
the friends not to associate with him in case he comes to the States, unless and
until he can produce a recommendation from the Spiritual Assembly of the locality
in which he lives.
"Yours in His Service,"
(signed) H. Rabbani.
