Zahra Sultan ‘Izzat al-Saltanah to Muhammad ‘Ali Nizam Mafi (Salar Mu‘azzam)
Zahra Sultan Nizam Mafi (‘Izzat al-Saltanah) writes to her brother, Muhammad ‘Ali Nizam Mafi (Salar Mu‘azzam), telling him that they have received his letter from Qazvin with his nice poems, souvenir, and knives, and that further, everybody has eaten the sweets and Mahmud Khan and Ma‘sumah Khanum loved the knives, but they both cut their hands the first day; she also mentions that Ma‘sumah Khanum tells everyone that Salar has called her Ma‘sumah Qatir-chi (the mule rider). She further informs her brother of Nasir al-Mulk's appointment as the new Nayib al-Saltanah and notes that he spoke highly of Muhammad ‘Ali Khan, when their father, Nizam al-Saltanah, visited him.

Love letters of ‘Abd al-Husayn Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk (Taymurtash), son of Karim Dad Khan, to Surur al-Saltanah, daughter of Zarrin Kulah Khanum and Khazin al-Mulk, accompanied by some envelopes and part of a letter, probably from Surur al-Saltanah to Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk. These letters were most likely written during the time between their ‘Aqd (formal contract of marriage) and ‘Arusi (marriage celebration and consummation), while Surur al-Saltanah was living in Tehran and Mu‘azzaz al-Mulk was traveling between Tehran and Khurasan; the letters have also been separately included in this collection; see related items.
