‘Abd al-Husayn Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk to Surur al-Saltanah

‘Abd al-Husayn Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk to Surur al-Saltanah

‘Abd al-Husayn Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk (Taymurtash) writes to Surur al-Saltanah complaining that Surur does not respond to his letters nor does she explain the reasons for her decision not to write to him. He also talks about meeting with Rukn al-Sultan and Fakham al-Saltanah for permission, that he was hoping for settling the date on the sixteenth, but they had decided to postpone it to the twenty sixth, and that he is not happy for this delay but he will stay patient. At the end, he mentions that, despite her decision to stop correspondence, he is sending this letter along with few other letters that had come from Mashhad, and asks her to write to him occasionally to let him know of her well-being.
