NOTICE
TO
THE READER.
The Manuscript, of which some of the following
pages contain the translation, was given to me by
his Persian Majesty, through my old and excellent
friend Mirza Bazurg, the Ka'imacam of Persia. It
had been promised to me very shortly after my
arrival at the Persian Court; but circumstances pre
vented the delivery of it, till the very eve of my
departure from Teheran; and it was then in great
haste copied from the original in the possession of
the King.
When the Manuscript was at last * delivered to
me, Mirza Bazurg thought it necessary to apologize
for the little beauty f of the hand-writing in which
it was transcribed, as well as for the poverty of the
illumination and binding; being pleased to say, that
my departure from Persia taking place sooner than
* The MS. was despatched to me ; and reached me at Erzeroum,
on my way to England. It lay many hours under water, with
some other things, when La Pomone was wrecked,
