Ziba to ʻAbd al-Husayn Mirza Farmanfarma

Ziba writes about her husband Karamʻali (from Harsin) and his brother’s children being beaten by relatives of Muʻtamad al-Sultan Muhammad Taqi Khan Sarhang (colonel), as well as his imprisonment. She claims that her husband is innocent and asks ʻAbd al-Husayn Mirza Farmanfarma for help. In the margin, ʻAbd al-Husayn Mirza Farmanfarma asks Muʻtamad al-Sultan Muhammad Taqi Khan Sarhang (colonel) to review the case and release Karamʻali (from Harsin) from jail if he is innocent.
