Farkhundah Arvand to Muhammad Husayn Arvand, 1951

Farkhundah Arvand writes to her husband, Muhammad Husayn Arvand, from London, on October 12, 1951. She mentions the end of the Rawzah period and notes that she has made a new vow for two additional days of Rawzah if they find a spot in the hospital for ‘Abbas. She also mentions that ‘Abbas’s issues with residency are being taken care of after his visit to the embassy. However, she declares that she constantly worries about him, as he might have to go to Germany if they don’t find a place for him in the hospitals in England. She then talks about her own situation and the surgery planned for the following day, again reminds her husband to send her money and reassures him and her children that her surgery will be fine.
