USBN #174 April-May 1945 p1
In view of the fact that a few Persians have, in defiance of the instructions and expressed wishes of their National Spiritual Assembly, gone to America, and in view of other considerations as well, the Guardian feels impelled to call the matter to your attention. You must recall to the believers’ minds the oft- repeated warnings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá concerning Orientals, especially Persians. The Americans, kind and open-hearted as they are. may easily fall a victim to the hypocritical and the insincere, and it is to protect them from being misled and imposed upon that he is sending you this message.
—Through his secretary, January 14, 1945.
