Exalted son, Mir Khán,* the superintendent of the provinces belonging to your army, refuses to govern the district of ‘Sakrá’ and wants another district in return for it. We have small sum of money and many have a demand for this (i.e. we have got a few provinces and there are many persons demanding them). The flesh and bones should be distributed equally. There is no possibility of getting a substitute for ‘Sakrá’. You should write to him to find out the difference between the two sums of money, produced by the district of ‘Sakrá’ and by the other district which he wants in return for ‘Sakrá’; and I will pay that difference to him in money.
