Thanks be to God that the veil was once more withdrawn from the world-ruler's knowledge of mysteries and that high and low obtained materials of guidance. During his return, his idea had been that he would locate the army for a time on the bank of the Indus, and enjoy some hunting. The soldiers would recruit and the rebels would be reduced to obedience. For this reason Khwāja Shamsu-d-dīn Khāfī was sent off to prepare the camping ground at Attock. H.M. halted in Rohtās and questions* were put to Zain K. Kokaltāsh and other officers who had been appointed to chastise the Tārīkīs. As it did not appear proper to proceed in that direction, he on 2nd Dāi* went on towards Lahore. After sixteen marches he arrived in that city on the 19th Dai, 29 December 1592. Crowds of men obtained the material of for­tune, and largesse was the order of the day (lit. there was a daily mar­ket of largesse). From Srīnagar to Rohtās is 112 kos, 30 poles, and the distance was traversed in eighteen marches. To Lahore (from Roh­tās) the distance is 162 1/2 kos, 16 poles, and it was traversed in thirty-four marches. An account of the Divine favours which were bestowed during this expedition has been given. A world sate gathering bliss, and the Age rose up to the fruition of its desires. At this time Balbhadahar the son of Rām Cand the ruler of Bhat'h* obtained lofty rank. His father had left him to wait upon H.M. At this time news came that the father had died on 27 Shahrīyūr. On 27 Dai H.M. appointed him to the same dignity of Rajaship. He conferred favours on him and sent him off to that country. On this 631 day Khwāja Sulaimān, the Bakhshī of Gujarat, had an audience and the presents of the Mīrzā were produced. On the 29th H.M., contrary to his morning custom, came into the daulatkhāna. After seeing* that everything was as usual he went to the gynocaeum. The pigeon house, in the shed of which many animals were reposing, fell down, and the cause of his unusual coming out became evident. On 2 Bahmān news came that Ghāzī K. Qazwīnī had died in Bengal of diarrhoea. On the 4th a female elephant which did not use to hurt a tiny ant broke out and killed her keeper and fourteen others.

One of the occurrences was the sending of an army to the northern mountains. As the proprietors there showed themselves refractory and did not accompany* the expedition to Kashmīr, H.M., on the 16th, at the request of Qulīj K., sent his son Saif Ullah there, and gave him Qāẓī Ḥasan as a companion. Though some proprietors came forward and paid their respects, Lāl Deo the ruler of Jammū was recalcitrant. Zain K. gave him quarter and brought him to court, and the northern rising subsided. At this time the home of Rām Cand was plundered. He is one of the famous zamīndars of Orissa, and by the glory of H.M.'s star he became obedient, and sent his son to do service. Rajah Mān Singh summoned him and he objected. The Rajah from inappreciativeness consigned his goodnesses to oblivion and sent Jagat Singh, Mīr Sharīf Sarmadī, Mīr Qāsim Badakhshī, Barkhūrdār, Abu-l-baqā, Maḥmūd Beg Shāmlū, Shihābu-d-dīn Diwāna and others to wage war on him. A commotion arose. Rām Cand entered the fort of Khurdah* which was the strongest of his fortresses. The imperialists took up their quarters close by, and proceeded to attack the country. The forts Sahajpāl (?) Khāragarh, Kālūpāra, Kahnān, Longarh, Bhūnmāl, and many populated places fell into possession. On hearing of this, H.M.—who appreciates dignities—became angry, and issued cen­sures. The Rajah recalled his troops, and apologised. Rām Cand, on seeing the graciousness of H.M., took the thought of paying his respects. On 21 Bahman he visited the Rajah (Mān Singh), and was treated with much respect.

One of the occurrences was the going astray of the Afghans. When the rebels of Orissa submitted, the Rajah wisely gave Khwāja Sulaimān, Khwāja 'Umān, Sher Kh. and Haibat Kh. fiefs in Khalī­fahābād, and selected āhir K. and Khwāja Bāqir Anṣārī to accom­pany them. From the shortsightedness and foolish talk of inexperienced persons he afterwards took away their jāgīrs and sum­moned 632 them to his presence. Out of ignorance, the Afghans became frightened and made sedition-mongering the means of their deliverance. On the 27th Bāqir was near Kharakpūr* and was going with some elephants to his estates when that crew cast aside the veil of respect and opened the hand of plunder. He was wounded, and retired. Pahār K., Tolak K., Farakh K., and the men of S'aīd K. gathered together to remedy matters, but from want of courage did not address themselves to battle. The Rajah sent his son Himmat Singh with some troops. The Afghans went on plundering and came to the port of Satgāon.* But as they could not lay hands on it, they returned unsuccessful, and proceeded to the house* of Cānd Rai. The officers came from Jahānābād. Himmat Singh went on a little way and then turned back. When the Afghans came near that place, Cānd Rai, at the suggestion of his father, conceived the idea of capturing them, and by his unskilfulness forfeited his own life. When Dilāwar, Sulaimān, and 'Umān encamped within four kos of the place (Bhūshna), he adopted the manners of a host. On 1 Isfandārmaẕ the first two came to his house. When Dilāwar got up for a necessary* purpose they seized him. Sulaimān, seeing this, laid hold of his sword and scattered the men. He killed three men and got to the gate of the fort. He killed several and bravely made his exit. On the road some men joined him, and he got on his horse and went quickly to his quarters. Cānd Rai followed him, and 'Uṣmān, on hearing of the affair, came to help. On the way, Sulaimān told the tale of Dilawār's capture, his own escape, and of the coming of the foe. Of necessity they set their hearts upon dying, and there was a hot engagement. The servants of the proprietor who were mostly Afghans, turned traitors and joined their country men, and he (Cānd) was killed. They plundered, and then set off for the fort. Those inside thought it was Cānd Rai and opened the gate. In this way the Afghans prevailed. By the intrigues of 'Isā zamīndār they took shelter with him, and made over the fort and territory to Kedār Rai the father of Cānd Rai. At this time the fort of Mānpūr was taken. It lies between Orissa and Telingāna. An army marched against it and took it without much trouble. Rajah Mān Singh gave it to Rām Cand.

One of the occurrences was the marriage-feast of Prince Sul­ān Selīm. Just as for other people more than one wife is not suit­able, so for great persons more are necessary, so that their dwellings may be more* splendid, and a large number of people may be sup­ported. Especially is this so with nobly-born persons who are the ornament of the Age. At the beginning of this spring Gulrukh Begam, the daughter* of M. Kāmrān, begged that her daughter might enter the harem of the Shāhinshāh's son. H.M. agreed and there was a banquet of joy. There was largesse and there were marriage presents. On the night of 7 Isfandārmaẕ H.M. had a meet­ing 633 in the house of Miriām Makānī, and the marriage was solemnized at an auspicious hour.

On the 23rd Pahār* K. died in Bardwān. His heirs were treated with princely favours.
