The following article rereads the identified letter from the “Zoroastrian Association Nāserī of Kerman” addressed to the Crown Prince of Iran, Moẓaffar al-Dīn Mīrzā. This letter, which is stored in the National Library and Archives of the Islamic Republic of Iran, includes valuable points about the literary writing style of Zoroastrians in Iran during the Qajar period. The Persian prose of the letter is notable as the author, contrary to the style of letter and prose writing of the Qajar era, attempts to use only pure Persian words.
