Scope and content

Before my departure from you we had a lot of questions and answers regarding my attitude towards your sending me to see the benefactor/mushfiq. God is a witness that I was not happy to come to this place but it is after a lot of assurances and cajoling from you that I agreed to take your leave and proceeded to see the mushfiq. This was done only because I care for the well-being of Gods creation and regard myself as your friend, and care for the welfare of the people, the prosperity of the country and your future. That is why, after disregarding my own wishes, and in order not to embarrass you and blacken my face before God, his prophet and his followers and considering the interests of my people above my own interests and considering you as the Plato of this age I departed to see the mushfiq. After a short stay at Benares with your approval I went to see him and stayed with him four to five gharis with him; I am now on my way to come and see you.
