1915 May A third international peace conference was planned by the Central Organization for a Durable Peace in The Hague and to this end they put out a request for interested specialist to attend. Two Bahá'ís in Tehran, Ahmad Yazdáni and 'Alí Muhammad 'Ibn-i-Asdaq, draw the organization's intention to 'Abdu'l-Bahá.

1916 February 11 After correspondence with Yazdáni, the Executive sent a letter to Tehran to be delivered to 'Abdu'l-Bahá. Communications were disrupted because of the war and the letter was not delivered to Him in Haifa until the 17th of December, 1919. He wrote a reply immediately and asked Ahmad Yazdáni and 'Alí Muhammad 'Ibn-i-Asdaq to come to Haifa and deliver the Tablet for HIm. In May of 1920 they departed for Rotterdam. Upon arrival they took a train to The Hague and delivered the Tablet on the 27th of May.

They learned that the Central Organization has been all but dissolved and that their objective, to hold a third peace conference, had been surpassed by their country's membership in the recently formed League of Nations in Geneva.
