Many historians write that Alore was a very large city on the bank of the Mihran (the Indus); that there were many very fine buildings in it; that outside and around the town there were gardens full of trees, having good fruit, and that everything was to be found there that the inhabitants and travellers might desire. The name of the ruler of that city and the surrounding country was Rais Suheeris, the son of Sahsee. He was a good, just king. By his kindness, all the men of consequence were obedient to him, the nobles and plebeians were under his control. The boundary of his country extended in an Easterly direction to Kash­mere and Kanoge, to the West to Mukran and the sea side (Daiwul, now called the Tatta and Luheree Bunder); to the South to Surat and Diu Bunder; to the North to Kandahar, Sejistan (Sehwistan), the Sooli­man Mountains, Karmania, and Keekanan. He divided this country into four divisions; in each division he placed a friend as governor, and he fixed upon Alore as his own place of residence. For a long time he reigned over this country in such a manner, that no one was rebellious; all obeyed his orders.

Suddenly a large Persian force from the King Neemroz came to Kuch and Mukran, by the way of Karmania. After looting those countries, and taking many prisoners, they returned. When Suheeris heard of this, he prepared a large army, and went to Kuch and Mukran, sending word to King Neemroz, who, also getting ready, went to fight him. In a few days they met, and fought from the morning till midday. At the end, Neemroz was the conqueror. He defeated the Sind army. As these were retreating, a Nawuk (a sort of arrow) struck Suheeris in the neck, and he died. The army of Neemroz looted the enemy till mid­night, when they proceeded to return. The Sind army, which was dispersed that night, collected and went to Alore. When they got there, they all agreed to place Rais Sahsee (the son of Suheeris) on the throne. He gave great festivals, distributing in charity much gold and pearls. He made no alteration in the mode of ruling the country: he governed with justice. He had a good disposition, treating all with kindness: full of mildness and humility, as he sat in judgment he displayed these qualities. All his subjects were very happy under his rule. After he had reigned one year, he took his army for exercise, and went to see the districts of his country. Wherever he found any dis­obedient, he took them out by the roots.

When he had satisfied himself with regard to the state of his country, he came to Alore, and he and all his people lived very happily.
