Long Autograph Letter in Persian with an identification in another hand that it relates to the Nawab of Oudh saying that they "went and we met Liyard John Taylor and the son of prince in Holder Matson. Lady Esterkford and Mr Moory were in this ceremony as described in the first paper. This night was the night of dance and songs. In the morning, we were going to go hunting. I told to Liyard to come with us, because I didn't had this experiences. Liyard was busy and he didn't accept my request. Esterkford also told me: staying at home beside the heater is better than go for hunting. At this moment, it was just snowing. John Taylor London came back and he was at the entrance of home, so I cancelled hunting because of the snow. Mr Webster, Mr Moory, the son of Taylor and some other young man went for hunting. They went to the thicket and ambushed and started shooting but suddenly a bullet hit the Moory's eye and he fell. They took him to the house and the house got crowded. Liyard went to take Cantry Thomas Merry and he brought him. The son of prince London came back with a physician from the city of Ridden. He told us take Moory to London and they took him tomorrow to London. Thanks God that we didn't go hunting due to the snow. Otherwise, it might have happened to us and we might be injured or killed. His eye doesn't see very well and his body is much weakened. I guess his sexual organs don't work too. I felt sickness in Holder Matson. I had headache and lots of pain in my body. When I came to London, I had shiver. Yesterday, I took a cathartic. Today I eat Kane-Kane. I feel worse to hearing from my sister. God give us the good child. May God keep you safe and sound and bless you and hope always be under the protection of God. I don't know when you will come back to my city. Send my regards to my sister and kiss your kids. Good bye. Azghandeh ...", 2 sides 8vo., no place, no date
