Good day.

My late father's employer won't pay me his last salary because I submitted a letter of executorship to them. They're asking me to submit a letter of authority instead and the master's office cannot issue two letters at the same time. 

We tried explaining to them that the two letters are the same and if anything, the letter of executorship is somehow above and more advanced than the letter of authority. They still insist on on not paying.
