‘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)’s letter to Surur al-Saltanah, in which he tells her that he has received her letter and postcard, talks about meeting Fakham al-Saltanah at the Rawzah ceremony in the Majlis, and asking him about Surur al-Saltanah’s well-being. Fakham al-Saltanah told him about Surur’s mouth and throat problem and when Mu‘azzaz realized that she was not coming to the Rawzah, he has returned home to be alone with thoughts of her and also to write some letters. He tells Surur how worried he is for her and how he often gets out of the home to escape his loneliness. He writes about approaching the end of Muharram and urges Surur to fulfil her promise and meet with him soon; the letter is accompanied by an envelope with Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk’s seal.
