[Babur's history has been thus brought to an end, incomplete in the balance needed of 7. In Kehr's volume a few pages are left blank except for what shews a Russian librarian's opinion of the plan of the book, "Here end the writings of Shah Babur."]
10 (Imp. omits). Preface to the history of Humayun, beginning at the Creation and descending by giant strides through notices of Khans and Sultans to "Babur Mirza who was the father of Humayun Padshah ". Of Babur what further is said connects with the battle of Ghaj-davan (918 15i2 q.v.). It is ill-informed, laying blame on him as if he and not Najm Sani had commanded speaks of his preference for the counsel of young men and of the numbers of combatants. It is noticeable for more than its inadequacy however ; its selection of the Ghaj-davan episode from all others in Babur's career suppoits circumstantially what is dealt with later, the Ghajdavani authorship of the Compilation.
11 (Imp. omits). Under a heading "Humayun Padshah" is a fragment about (his? Accession) Feast, whether broken off by loss of his pages or of those of his archetype examination of the P. Univ. Codex may show.
12 (Imp. 6). An excellent copy of Babur's Hindustan Section, perhaps obtained from the Ahrari house. [This Ilminski places (I think) where Kehr has No. 7.] From its position and from its bearing a scribe's date of completion (which Kehr brings over), viz. Tamt shtid 1126 (Finished 1714), the compiler may have taken it for Humayun's, perhaps for the account of his reconquest of Hind in 1555.
[The remaining entries in Kehr's volume are a quatrain which may make jesting reference to his finished task, a librarian's Russian entry of the number of pages (831), and the words Etablisscment Orientate, Fr. v. Adelung, 1825 (the Director of the School from 1793).1
