Abstract: 

The Bayhaghi History, one of the most valuable works in the Farsi Language in the 5th century, has importance in literary and historical features. Bayhaghi, the secretary, (384-470 A.H) has pointed out to many customs such as: letter and letter-writing. In addition to historic and literary value, he has expressed some of Iranian cultures in his work. This characteristic is also seen in the Shahnameh.
Hakim Abulghassem Ferdowsi, the great Persian epic poet (329-411) has tried to preserve and eternize some of the Iranian rich culture and civilization. He has specified most of the traditions of communications between kings, great men, heroes, and social classes through letter-writing and sending messages.
In this essay, by introducing the correspondence office and its duty in the Ghaznawid Dynasty, we’ll survey the joint aspects of letter-writing in the Bayhaghi and the Shahnameh, even though they don’t belong to the same period of time. The similarities of these two works are posed from the view points of: writing, tone, topic, and kinds of customary letter-writings in the courts. It seems that Ferdowsi has paid more attention to the texts of the letters, their detailed correspondence than Bayhaghi.
