This manuscript includes a few mathnavis with title headings including the story of Shaykh San’an and the the Christian maidan and one on the virtues of Imam ‘Ali. His pen-name Khosravi and the mention of the name Fath ’Ai shah are always given in red in his ghazals.
The manuscript has a few colophons, stating that it was copied by Khalil al-Sarawi, who is not recorded, but clearly a calligrapher from the city of Sari in Mazandaran, where the Prince was Governor. The colophons are dated at the end of the mathnavis dated Thursday Rabi’ ii 1240 AH (November-December 1824 AD) (the date of the composition of this section is given in abjad and numbers 1220 AH/1805-06 AD); another at the end of his ghazals on eulogies of Fath ’Ali Shah dated 1240 AH (1824-5 AD), and another at the end of his other ghazals, also dated 1240 AH (1824-45 AD). This means the manuscript was produced during the prince’s lifetime.
