Muhammad Husayn Mirza and ‘Abbas Mirza Farmanfarma’iyan to Zahra Sultan ‘Izzat al-Saltanah, 1935

Muhammad Husayn Mirza Farmanfarma’iyan, the younger brother of ‘Abbas Mirza Salar Lashkar, writes to his sister-in-law, Zahra Sultan ‘Izzat al-Saltanah, from the hospital in Berlin. He mentions that he is writing on Salar Lashkar’s behalf, as his weakness does not allow him to write himself. He describes Salar Lashkar’s treatment and tells her that he is improving and there is no need to worry. Muhammad Husayn then writes Salar Lashkar’s response to ‘Izzat al-Saltanah’s questions on issues concerning their business, property, and finances. At the end, asks her to inform Farmanfarma and Khanum regarding Salar Lashkar’s health and explain why he cannot write himself. On the margin, Salar Lashkar has written a note and expressing his appreciation of Muhammad Husayn’s kindness toward him.
