I have the honour to refer to correspondence ending
with Foreign and Political Department memorandum No.770(2)
-N., dated the 23rd December 1S25, and to report for the
information of the Government of India that Sardar
Nasrat’s son, 1 /Ierat-es-Saltaneh, has intimated to His
Majesty’s Consul, Kerman, that, though his father has
managed,by paying the balance of interest due, to carry
cut the arrangement with regard to the repayment of the
loan and interest which the sardar himself had proposed
and which the Government of Indie, were pleased to sanc
tion on my recommendation, yet the Sardar is extremely
embarrassed partly owing to the bad harvest of last year
and that it will be quite Impossible for him to pay the
interest due in July of this year.
2. Mr. Law adds that the Sardar 1 s family are always
living above their income, and that this is constantly
diminishing, as they sell more and more lends. It,
therefore, seems necessary that steps should be taken
in time to safeguard the interests of Government, while
at the same time relieving the Sardar from obligations
which he is unable to meet.
