Muhammad Shah's decree about Mulla Ismaʻil's pension, 1840

Copy of [Muhammad Shah’s] decree determining that twelve tumans of Isfahan’s tax revenue be paid to Mulla Ismaʻil, son of Mulla Abu al-Hasan Barfurush, and his other inheritors for subsistence. Muʻtamad al-Dawlah was assigned to take the pension annually from Isfahan’s tax revenue. The Shah’s officers were also assigned to cancel the same amount from Mazandaran’s tax revenue, because after Mulla Abu al-Hasan’s death, Sayyid Husayn Saravi had assumed no inheritors for Mulla Abu al-Hasan, so he revoked the pension of Isfahan and instead added it to Mazandaran’s tax revenue for himself.
