Women's Worlds in Qajar Iran

Letter from Elizabeth Stewart, 1923

Letter from Elizabeth Stewart, 1923

The letter, written in two installments, details what the author has been doing as Dr. Coy fell ill and left to travel to America through Baghdad and Haifa, and Dr. Moody is also ill, so the upkeep work of the school has fallen to her. She gives an update on the school finances, as well. She also mentions a trunk the addressee sent her, and expresses gratitude for the effort in getting the trunk and its contents to her; as well as sending an illumined book of Baha’i scriptures back to the addressee, along with a letter to be delivered to a woman, Maggie, who the author worries will insult the addressee. She also asks the addressee to send her blue locket, and gives instructions on how best to send it via registered mail.
