Chapter Summary

After a while, consistent with the instruction of the Qájár sovereign, the captives of Zanjan, that is, the household of the illustrious Akhúnd Mullá Muhammad-ʿAlí Zanjání, [surnamed] Hujjat, who were previously destined for Tihrán, were now ordered to be sent to Shíráz. Upon arrival at Tihrán, the Qájár monarch was informed of the manner in which they were made captive and conducted to the capital. The Sháh ordered that the prisoners must not remain in Tihrán but instead panniers be prepared for their delivery to Fárs in a dignified and befitting manner. Subsequent to the Sháh’s command, panniers with exquisite covers were readied and several attendants assigned to their service. In this manner they were conducted to Shíráz.
