The accident met by the deceased Ihtamám Khán* is through the negligence of (his) followers. We should not give countenance to them; nay we should break their backs with the stick of inattention (i.e., we should shew indiffer­ence to them). Whence shall we get an honest and intelligent man like the late Khán? He had fattened the (royal) horses so much and kept such fine order in the stable that I cannot describe it. O God! forgive him (i.e., the Khán) and have mercy upon him; because You are the most merciful. You should write strongly to Saif Khán* to punish the rebels. He should be given his pay in advance so that he will not delay (in punishing the rebels). The work is difficult.
