INTELLIGENCE RECEIVED SINCE THE CLOSE OF THE

JOURNAL FOR 1831.

LETTER FROM THE REV. J. WOLFF.
Desert of Mewr in the kingdom of Khiva,

Feb. 17, 1832. “ UNDER the powerful protection of H. R. H. Abbas Mirza I have arrived safely so far ; where I am in the tents of hospitable and kind Jews, surrounded by Turcomans; and to-morrow morning I set out for Bokhara, accompanied by the principal Turcomans of Sarakhs, two Osbeks, and one Jew. I am already announced to the kings both of Bokhara and Khiva. I cannot write to you now more in order, that my letter may not excite suspicion in the eyes of the Turcomans, who are the bearers of it, by its bulk. I have preached the Gospel fully to the Jews and Turcomans of Mewr and Sarakhs :

: they consider me (i. e. the latter do) as the forerunner of the Sahib Zemaan (or the Lord of the Age) the Messiah of the Mussulmans. I am now four days distant from Bokhara.

“ Yours,

JOSEPH WOLFF."

LETTER OF MR. WOLFF TO H. R. H. ABBAS MIRZA PRINCE REGENT

OF PERSIA*. “ Mewr in Turkistan, in the territory of the king of Khiva,

Feb. 16, 1832. “ I arrived last night at Mewr. Away Aga Kehara, who accompanied me to Bokhara, behaved very well. Your Royal Highness has shewn to me such great kindness, that I feel it to be my duty to inform your Royal Highness that on my return to Meshed I shall be accompanied by fifty Turcomans and Temoore, whom I have convinced that slave-making is sin ; and they will come with me to your Royal Highness, and take service in the army of your Royal Highness. The Jews of Mewr beg me to mention to your Royal Highness that they had been falsely accused by people of Meshed, that they have taken part in men-selling of the Turcomans; and your Royal Highness may rest assured that that report is a lie. But, on the contrary, they gave meat and money to the unfortunate slaves. As my mission to the Jews has already reached the ears of the king of Bokhara, and as express messengers are gone on my account from the agents of the king of Bokhara to his Majesty, I humbly petition your Royal Highness to recommend me strongly to the kings of Bokhara and Khiva, and mention to them that I was a missionary to the Jews. I beg your Royal Highness to command Mirza Baba to send a copy of this letter to Lady Georgiana.

“ I am, Prince, your most dutiful servant,

(signed) JOSEPH wolff, missionary."

* Translated by Mirza Baba, Physician to His Royal Highness.

L

LETTER OF MIRZA BABA TO LADY G. M. WOLFF.

“ Meshed, March 18, 1832. My Lady,- I beg

to have the honour to send to your Ladyship, by the desire of his Royal Highness Abbas Mirza, the copy of a letter from his excellency the Rev. Missionary Wolff; and am happy to state that his excellency has safely reached to Bokhara; and is likely, finding the roads safe, he will proceed to Khivå and Cabul, after being some time in Bokhara. With your Ladyship's permission I will do myself the pleasure to inform your Ladyship the news I shall be favoured from his excellency in future ;

Hoping to remain, my Lady,
“ Your Ladyship’s humble servant,

(signed) “ M. BABA.”

N.B. This very kind and gentlemanlike letter is written in English, and copied verbatim.
