piade our agreement, we (biz) should march together against Samarkand; and when I was in possession of Samarkand, Andijan was to be given to Jahangir. So the affair was settled. jjext day, it was one of the last of Rajab, (end of Feb. 1500) Jahangir Mlrza and Tambal came and did me obeisance; me terms and conditions were ratified as stated above; leave for Akhsl was given to Jahangir and I betook myself to Andijan.
On our arrival, Khalll-of-Tambal and our whole band of prisoners were released; robes of honour were put on them and leave to go was given. They, in their turn, set free our begs and household, viz. the commanders1 (Sherim ?) Taghal Beg, Muhammad-dost, Mir Shah Quchm, SayyidI Qara Beg, Qasimi-'ajab, Mir Wais, Mirlm Diwdn, and those under them.
(p. The self-aggrandizement of 'A ll-dost Taghai.)
After our return to Andijan, 'AH-dost's manners and behaviour changed entirely. He began to live ill with my companions of the guerilla days and times of hardship. First, he dismissed Khalifa; next seized and plundered Ibrahim Saru and Wais Lagharl, and for no fault or cause deprived them of their districts and dismissed them. He entangled himself with Qasim Beg and he was made to go; he openly declared,' Khalifa and Ibrahim are in sympathy about Khwaja-i-qazI; they will avenge him on me.'2 His son, Muhammad-dost set himself up on a regal footing, starting receptions and a public table and a Court and workshops, after the fashion of sultans. Like father, like son, they set themselves up in this improper way because they had Tambal at their backs. No authority to restrain their unreasonable misdeeds was left to me; for why? Whatever their hearts desired, that they did because such a foe of mine as Tambal was their backer. The position was singularly delicate; not a word was said but many humiliations were endured from that' father and that son alike.
bashlighldr. Teufel was of opinion that this word is not used as a noun 10 the B.N. In this he is mistaken ; it is so used frequently, as here, in aPposition. See ZDMG, xxxvii, art. Babur und Abu'1-fazl.
