Scope and content

I had gone to Ajudhia for the sacred baths when I had the opportunity to seek an audience with Shuja al-Daulah Bahadur. He was very kind to me and repeatedly asked me about you and I replied to him, very diplomatically, that which I consideres to be appropriate. He wished to appoint me to negotiate between you and him but I refused this offer; he took me aside to question me further privately. Later on the Navab Vazir on the advice of his courtier came to this part of the country. After travelling two manzils the Navab Vazir asked his Begam and his son Mirza Amani to return to Faizabad. As I did not find the conversation of courtiers very amiable I separated from the company of the Navab and returned to where I am now. The Navab who is at present coming to see you expects a large number of favours from you. I am writing to you to warn you of his intentions. I will be waiting for whatever you want me to do next.
