Chapter Summary

On hearing of the occurrences in Nayríz, the general disturbances in Fárs, and the ineptness of the Ásifuʾd-Dawlih, the authorities in Tihrán decided to discharge Ásifuʾd-Dawlih from office and appoint a competent, law-abiding person as the governor-general of Fárs. Therefore, they telegraphed the dismissal of Hájí Ásifuʾd-Dawlih, with the additional instruction for him to quickly depart for the capital, entrusting the affairs of Fárs to Habíbuʾlláh Khán, the Qavámuʾl-Mulk. After several months, Jaʿfar-Qulí Khán, the Sahámuʾd-Dawlih, was appointed to the governorship of Fárs and on the 1 Shaʿbán AH 1327, accompanied by only seven others, arrived at Shíráz. Affairs progressed splendidly for six months, and all segments of society enjoyed tranquility and comfort.

Keywords: Ásifuʾd-Dawlih; Nayríz; political reforms
