Petition of the shopkeepers of Miyanaj

A group of shopkeepers in Miyanaj [Miyanah] write to a cleric about an Armenian named Sarkiz, the liquor seller, who has purchased a building in the center of Miyanaj. People gather there to drink at night, they get drunk and behave dishonorably. Despite the signers’ complaints against him, the government of Miyanaj has done nothing and has deferred the issue to the government of Tabriz.
