巻末奥書 (Kanmatsu okugaki)

Postscript

 

This scroll, transmitted through the generations of this house, is an incomparable treasure. Nevertheless, as it was unclear as to whom of what house received these records of proclamations (kuzen an) and other documents, so Shigeno and the Lay Priest Former Grand Minister Lord Kinzumi Holy Name Ryōkaku explained these records and I clumsily wrote notations on separate pieces of paper. I have received the lingering honor of my ancestors, for on this past twenty-sixth day of the twelfth month, the Secretary Captain Lords (tō no chūjō) Shigeno and Saneyasu ason recommended me to be appointed as a palace guard (takiguchi) and on the next day I was appointed as the Lesser Lieutenant of the Left Palace Guard (saemon shōjō) of the Sixth Rank Upper. My descendants should not be careless regarding these auspicious things. Thus I have added this postscript as such.

 

First day of the fourth month of the eighteenth year of Kyōho [1733]

Takiguchi saemon no jō Taira ason Kiyooki (monogram)

巻末奥

 

此一巻者当家代々之相傳無比類重寶也

然處口 宣案以下其家其人不分明之

間就滋野并前大納言入道殿公澄卿法名良覚而相考

以愚筆別紙註附之抑予以先祖之

餘薫去年十二月廿六日頭中将殿滋野并實全朝臣

依吹挙今度被補滝口即翌日

被任左衛門少尉被叙従六位上添難有事

於子孫不可存全疎略者仍聊

加奥書畢

 

于時享保十八年丑四月一日 滝口左衛門尉平朝臣清興 (花押)
