      خواجه امیر حسنک را هر چند خواست که پیش وی بنشیند نگذاشت و بر دست راست من و دست راست خواجه ابوالقاسم کثیر و بونصر مشکان بنشاند، هر چند ابوالقاسم کثیر معزول بود، اما حرمتش سخت بزرگ بود و بوسهل بر دست چپ خواجه، از این نیز سخت‌تر بتابید
      Although Amir Hasanak wanted to sit near him, Khwajah [Ahmad] didn't let it, and seated him at my right-hand, and at Khwajah Abul-Qasim Kasir's and Bu Nasr Mushkan's right-hand—although Abul-Qasim Kasir was deposed, his reverence was so great—and [seated] Bu Sahl at Khwajah's left-hand; he [Bu Sahl] was outraged even more because of this.
