After the departure from Paris and travel to Iran of the Imam became certain,
the Imam instructed me to go the houses of the neighbors in Neauphle le-Château
and to apologize to them on his behalf because of the inconvenience caused to
them during the period of his residence. I together with Mr. Ishraqi and one or
two others went to visit all the neighbors of that village and relayed the
message of the Imam to them and apologized to them on behalf of the Imam.
