KHAYRU'LLAH RENOUNCES ABBAS EFENDI IN FAVOUR OF HIS BROTHER MUHAMMAD ALI.
From this moment Khayru'llah began to read the Holy Verses, to compare therewith Abbas Efendi's claims, acts and teachings, to weigh them in the balance of reason, and to measure them with the measure of the Holy Law revealed from the Supreme Pen. [Having done so] he found no escape from abandoning Abbas Efendi and thereafter turning towards His Holiness the Most Great Branch [al-Ghusnul-Akbar] Muhammad Ali Efendi. in obedience to the command contained in the Book of my Testament. So ere seven months had elapsed from the time of his pilgrimage Ibrahim Khayru'llah joined himself to the ranks of His Holiness Muhammad Ali Efendi, and about three hundred of the believers in Chicago and Kenosha followed him. and likewise a small number from every city wherein believers were to be found. Most of the believers however. continued to follow Abbas Efendi.
BAHA'I MISSIONARIES SENT TO AMERICA TO RECLAIM OR CONFUTE KHAYRU'LLAH.
Now as for the emissaries and ambassadors, 'Abdul Karim of Tihran, Asadullah of Isfahan, Haji Mirza Hasan of Khurasan, Miirza Abu l-Fazl of Gulpayagan and their followers, whom Abbas Efendi sent to America with the object of bringing back Khayru'llah to him, and what he suffered at their hands and from the American followers of Abbas Efendi in the way of divers vexations and lying rumours, all these matters will be mentioned, if it please God, in another book which shall be a memorial from which shall be diffused the fragrance of patience, forbearance and steadfastness in God's religion.
