Leaf from the Epistle to the Son of the Wolf (Lawh-i-Ibn-i-Dhi'b), in the Revelation handwriting of Mirza Aqa Jan, the secretary of Bahá’u’lláh.

"Revelation" writing

Bahá’u’lláh would sometimes recite with such rapidity that His secretary could barely keep up with the flow of His words. Afterwards, the secretary would occasionally be unable to read his own handwriting and would ask Bahá’u’lláh to help decipher the words.
