Read: Year Amongst the Persians, A


Scanned and proofread by Duane K. Troxel; formatted by Jonah Winters.
As there are multiple editions of this book, no attempt has
been made to provide an exact facsimile of a hard copy.

Note: it would be helpful to have a separate file consisting of just the
sections of this book in which Browne refers to the Babis and the Bahá'ís.
Anyone willing to assemble such a compilation would be welcomed.
