In the year 931 (A. D. 1524) Shah Hoosain, marching towards Mooltan, passed over the intervening space, and arrived near Sewraee. He then gave the orders to plunder; so his troops looted, and wherever they found an enemy they put him to the sword. The Beloochees, hearing of this, fled to Ooch: some few went to the fort of Sewraee, where they determined to fight. This was the strongest fort in all that country. Shah Hoosain encamped near a tank, and Sultan Mahomed Bukree, galloping to the front, towards the fort, commenced fighting with those men who were near, and outside of it. At that time he had with him eighty men. I have myself heard, from the tongue of Sultan Mahomed himself, that in this battle of Sewraee thirty men fell to his sword alone, and that his men behaved most bravely, slaying two hundred of the enemy.

When the Beloochees saw this, they fled from the fort. In the morn­ing, when Shah Hoosain heard of it, he gave credit and praise to Sultan Mahomed, but calling him in private, he struck him three times with a stick, rebuking him, saying: “This bad gallop of yours, and your going in advance, was not good.” The next day he marched, coming near Sewraee, the destruction of which he ordered; and in seven days it was level with the ground. He went from thence to Mow, encamping at a tank near it.

Shaikh Roo-ool-lah, the son of Shaikh Himad Koraishee, a great Musulman saint, came to visit Meerza Shah Hoosain, saying in his presence, that the men of Mow were very weak, and had no heart to fight. Shah Hoosain ordered Meerza Mahomed Miskeen Turkhan to take some men and go into the fort, and see what was in it in the way of provi­sions, and not to raise the hand of violence against any Lungahs and Beloochees whom he might find there. He went as directed, and he did not touch these; but he seized and sent bound to Shah Hoosain all the other men whom he found there. Shah Hoosain remained outside till the third day, when he entered the fort, making pilgrimage to the tombs of many saints there. He arranged with the Shaikhs of the place, that if any of his men passed to and fro, they were not to annoy them, and that they were not to admit amongst them any of his enemies. Shaikh Roo-ool-lah afterwards requested him to forgive the faults of Rahman Dahur. Shah Hoosain replied that Sultan Mahomed Khan knew him, as two of his brothers had died through the opposition of him and his people. At length, seeing advantage, he called him, and Rahman presented himself with his sword suspended from around his neck. Sultan Mahomed Khan forgave him the blood of his brothers, and after this Rahman said he would give the daughter of his brother in marriage to him, which was agreed to. So he presented to him the sister of Jan Jeewun Dahur.

Mohib Ali Turkhan, with 500 horse, was appointed to lead the van in the march from Mow, and Shah Hoosain, following him, encamped near the border of Lar. Here one called Bunduh Dahur, who was the bravest of all the men in Mooltan, came to Shah Hoosain, who gave him a Khilat and a present. He then made him over to the care of Sultan Mahomed Khan. From thence he marched to go to Ooch.
