Abstract A biography of the first French Bahá'í, followed by telegrams and letters from Shoghi Effendi to Laura Dreyfus-Barney and Hippolyte's sister Mrs. Yvonne Meyer-May.
Notes Here is an article that Laura Dreyfus-Barney intended for The Bahá'í World. It was in Laura Dreyfus-Barney's papers in the French Bahá'í National Centre. It had no title. I gave it the title Hippolyte Dreyfus-Barney. The text had the form of a typed article with manuscript corrections, which I included in the article I'm posting here. I also changed the transliteration for the Persian words (Bahá'í for Bahai, &c.) as well as for Chinese words (in Pinyin). Two crossed passages seemed interesting. I left them between [ ]. -Thomas Linard
