Abstract Informal notes about and introduction to `Abdu'l-Bahá's Risalih-i-Siyasiyyih (1893).
Notes This commentary was posted to a listserver as a series of 14 informal emails, which have been assembled into a single document. Because this content was from an email list, the tone is conversational and there is no formatting.

See also French translation of this tablet, by Hippolyte Dreyfus-Barney. The original Persian text can be found here (off-site). See also this letter of the House of Justice which addresses the treatise.
