Zahra Sultan ‘Izzat al-Saltanah to Muhammad ‘Ali Nizam Mafi (Salar Mu‘azzam)

Zahra Sultan Nizam Mafi (‘Izzat al-Saltanah) writes to her brother, Muhammad ‘Ali Nizam Mafi (Salar Mu‘azzam) and mentions his possible contribution to the Constitutional Commission, which is being pursued by Mushir al-Dawlah; discusses sending him money, the bread shortage crisis, and the circumcision of Mahmud Khan by the same person who performed the procedure for Ahmad Shah. She talks about the ceremony, in which Mujir al-Saltanah, Burhan al-Dawlah, and Muhammad Khan Salar Muhtasham were present. For the women’s gathering three days later, they invited female musicians and hired Farmanfarma’s cook for the lunch, but not many from the family showed up, except for Sa‘d al-Mulk’s wife.
