New loan to Sirdar Nusret. First instalment Tomans 3500
plus interest up to that date Tomans 1213 odd total 4713 odd
falls due from hiTR^SOth July 1924. He will be due Tomans 718
odd on account of rent less allotment for repairs up to that
date so a nett amount of Tomans 3995 odd will be recoverable.
He has now telegraphed from Tehran that owing to his absence

no other course. He is certainly in financial difficulties just
