I am looking for some manuscripts of Qurrat al-ŽAyn containing unpublished poems, and apologetic writings, which would provide a source for her views. I contacted Mr. Denis MacEoin, who has got these manuscripts, to have
a copy of them, but because of some certain problem, he is not able to provide me with these copies. But he told me, there are some other persons, who are in possession of most of the manuscripts listed in his book on Babi writings.
would you please tell me if I can
have access to the following manuscripts, which have been formerly kept in
INBA with the following serial numbers?

INBA 5045E, a small manuscript of exactly 10X6 cms., consisting of 102 folios.
INBMC 80, A collection of early babi writings under the title "nivishtijat va
athar-i ashab-i awwaliyya-yi amr-i aŽla" containing (pp.212-82) a reproduction
of a manuscript ascribed to Qurrat al-ŽAyn

would you please let me know if these manuscripts or others
are available?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

best wishes
