1706. LETTER CI.

I gave a turban made of the Yaman* cloth to the son* of Muhammad Ameen Khán*. You should order the super­intendent of the jewellery department* to send me in the evening two or three turbans with their exact prices. Though it is not a rule to present a turban to a person whose post is lower than that of ‘Chehár-Hazári’,* as he is a boy it matters not to give him such a present for pleasing him. His Majesty (Sháh Jehán) also had presented (a tur­ban) to the son* of Sadik Khán Bakhashi. (But) H. M. prohibited him from putting on such a turban (given as a present) when he arrived at the age of discretion and grew up to be a man.
