‘Abbas Arvand to Muhammad Husayn Arvand, 1951

‘Abbas Arvand writes to his father, Muhammad Husayn Arvand, from London on October 18, 1951. He describes the condition of his mother, Farkhundah Arvand, their exchanges with her doctor, and her surgery. He explains that he has shown no negligence in taking care of his mother’s treatment and that the delay in the surgery was the result of the unavailability of hospital beds and the surgeon’s busy schedule. He describes his mother’s medical condition, the surgery that was performed five days prior, its success, and his mother’s recovery process. He reminds his father about the cost of the hospital and the surgery. He also discusses his own issues and mentions that he now has time to follow up on them. He mentions his mother’s request that they send a photograph of Furuzandah to her.
