YOUR zealous and affectionate slave Abdulkadir represents at the place of addressing the respectable personage of the exalted court, that night and day he petitions from Heaven abundance of daily-increasing prosperity and a succession of various conquests. Since this proceeds from the purity of attach­ment and sincerity, he is desirous and hopeful, that it may have the honor of being acceptable. As my intention was to express submission and sincerity, I have not been troublesome with prolixity. May your prosperity and happiness increase.
