*''New York Times'', Apr 30, 1899, page 7, "Apostle of Persian Mystics" : "Dr Kheiralla Makes a Visit to America with His Daughters.  The Rev. Dr. Ibrahim G. Kheiralla and his daughters, Miss Nabiha and Miss Labiha, who arrived here yesterday on the steamship St. Louis, have returned from a visit to the interior of Persia, accompanied by some Americans.  Dr. Kheiralla was a clergyman of the Church of England, but withdrew from his charge some years ago and went to Persia as the pupil of a Persian community and brotherhood from which he emerged with radical views concerning the interpretation of the Bible. All teaching by members of the brotherhood is imparted orally, and persons to whom it is given promise to receive no pay or reward of any character for imparting it to others.  Those who can grasp the teachings, it is claimed, become members of a great mystic fraternity possessing occult powers.  This fraternity, it is said, has many members in the United States, and recently a small company of the initiated, under the guidance of  Dr. Kheiralla, left this country to visit the heads of the fraternity in Persia and to receive special communications."
