    couldn’t make much sense since I’m not a Turkish speaker myself but I deduced some stuff:

    1. The letter is dedicated to 2 persons, Ali and Mohammed Agha (Agha here is title).

    2. I read the word “Silah” in some places, so I take it as it is about some weapons (Silah = weapon in Arabic).

    3. The writer seems to be someone named Uğlu Ramadhan Aghajan.

    I read also some names like Othman and Muslim Afandi (Afandi is also a title).
