  1. Dear friends, It has taken me awhile but I finally listened to the first 10 of the 12 talks given by Adib Taherzedeh “Drawing Nigh to Baha’u’llah”. Then I ran into a little problem.. When I downloaded talk 11 of the 12 it turned out to be the tape already downloaded as talk 10 of 12. No matter what I do I cannot get talk 11 of 12 to download. I am working from the Soundcloud Chart at [https://www.bahaiblog.net/2020/01/drawing-nigh-to-bahaullah-a-series-of-12-talks-given-by-adib-taherzadeh/#more-54663]. The only thing I can think of is that number 10 was loaded as number 11 and either nobody listened to them all or no one reported the problem. I’m sorry to be a bother but I have listened very carefull to the series so far and truly hope to finish the set. Perhaps you could check into it for me. Thank you for your service and assistance.

    Sincerely, Will
