That’s correct Doris. Here is the authoritative interpretation of that Tablet:

“Concerning the Tablet of the Holy Mariner, it is one of the most significant Tablets revealed by Bahá’u’lláh during the last days of His stay in Baghdad, and His arrival in Adrianople. Its main significance lies in the fact that in it Bahá’u’lláh clearly foreshadows the grave happenings, which eventually led to the defection of Subhi-Azal, and to the schism which the latter thought to create within the ranks of the faithful.”
