Esther 1:19, Question 2. What is Memuchan’s motivation to have this event written down?

The Maharal suggests that putting the deed on paper will make it impossible for the king to go back on his word. We must recall that Memuchan is in grave danger if the king disregards his advice. In fact, his entire devious plot to gain control of the monarchy (as stated in previous blogs) would fail tremendously if the emotionally numb Achashverosh recalls his love for his wife in time to save her.
