Letter about visiting the Crown Prince in Tabriz

The writer talks about his mission to Tabriz and visit to the Crown Prince [Muzaffar al-Din Mirza], how this mission had failed and the Crown Prince had refused to see him, saying that he did not need a tutor. He describes the Crown Prince’s outrage and adds that Shukuh al-Saltanah knew all along that this mission was doomed to fail. He then gives an account of how he had paid his debts to the butcher, the grocer, and the draper before leaving Tabriz as well as his meeting with Zill al-Sultan. He also mentions Shukuh al-Saltanah’s complaint and disappointment about how the Crown Prince did not want to see her either. The writer also writes about the condition of Khurasan and wants the reader to have Firuz Khan manage the affairs in his absence and asks the reader to take care of his personal affairs.
