Sayyid Yahya Adib al-Shu‘ara’ to ‘Abd al-Husayn Mirza Farmanfarma, 1890

Haji Sayyid Yahya Adib al-Shu‘ara’ (from Tabriz)’s petition discusses the pension of Mulla Yahya and ʻAbd Allah Bayg, the hardships the author went through during his pilgrimage to Mecca, and the delay in paying one-third of Mulla Yahya’s belongings to his inheritors. This delay was caused by the heir of Haji Muhammad Baqir who is the Kadkhuda (village chief) of a village, which is owned by Surur al-Saltanah. His appointees sabotaged the payment despite the efforts of Mustashar al-Sultan. At the end, the author refers to the necessity of paying the one-third and asks the addressee to investigate.
