In 1873 during the course of his first State visit to England, Nasir ud-Din Shah allowed his Minister of Ceremonies, Hakim ul-Mulk, to make arrangements for his son to spend a year at an establishment known as the London International College. The Contract was signed and witnessed on 2 July 1873 at Buckingham Palace, where the Shah was staying, and now rests among the Royal Archives at Windsor. It stipulated that the boy was to have a bedroom to himself and not go into town without a master. During the holidays he was to live with the Principal. He was to be taught English, French, mathematics, drawing, geography, natural sciences "and a little history". The fee, exclusive of clothing, was agreed at 230 guineas, payable in advance. History does not record what happened to the boy.
