Letter from Muhammad Riza Ashtiyani Banan al-Dawlah

A letter of request from Muhammad Riza Ashtiyani Banan al-Dawlah to an unidentified person regarding a document handwritten by Nasir al-Din Shah about the enforcement of his royal command for the payment of a stipend to the late Nur Muhammad Khan’s children. The letter mentions that after the murder of Nasir al-Din Shah, the author sent a letter to Muzaffar al-Din Shah, but never received a reply, which caused them great concern. The writer also indicates that Anis al-Dawlah and Mirza Hamd Allah Khan have recommended the payment of this salary but their recommendations have not proven useful.
