To BÛRHÂNÛDDEEN; same date. (12th April.)

YOUR letter has been received. What you state, respecting your having withdrawn from the trenches,* and taken up a position with your army on the banks of the Punâhileh, is understood.

You must give orders to the predatory cavalry to harass the front and rear of the enemy, and to seize on all the horses they can; the present being the proper time for collecting together and obtaining horses.

Nursia, the Taalûkdâr of Nugr, has sent you, by our direction, forty thousand Behâdury pagodas,* for the pay of your army, which you will, of course, have received. What more?
