高倉永継書状 (Takakura Nagatsugu shojō)

Takakura Nagatsugu again praises Kiyonori for his actions, and states that the glory of his service rebounds favorably on the Takakura as well. This dates from the day after Kiyonori’s promotion.

A Letter by Takakura NagatsuguI am aware of this letter and am giving it to you for future reference.
Regarding the great image, you handled that appropriately and should be praised. Yashirō shall explain the details.

You managed to recover the ceremonial robes without incident. That his majesty thought this estimable and expressed it redounds even to our honor.

Separately, regarding the other matters, I shall make inquiries.

Respectfully,
[Bunmei 2 (1470)]               [As above]
