7.9 Isshiki Fujinaga letter 一色藤長書状

Description


Letter of Isshiki Fujinaga

Regarding the appointment of Utsunomiya, deepest thanks for the gift of the enemy’s sword Sukechika. In addition to the 1000 hiki sent, for the reason of making this known publicly, I wish to inform you a Shogunal communique will be sent as a separate document, and that the set of swords and one horse is accepted in great friendship. I am obliged to you. Furthermore a messenger monk will speak to the Shogun on your behalf and receive his acknowledgement. Very respectfully,

7th Month 9th Day,     Fujinaga

To Ushifuku Dono and those acting on his behalf

就被補宇津宮御

敵為御礼御太刀一腰助近

鵞眼千疋御進上之趣

令披露候仍被成

御内書之通以別紙申

入候随而御太刀一腰御馬

一疋拝受之候尤御懇意

畏存候猶御使僧可被申

入之旨可得御意候恐惶謹言

七月 九日 藤長在判
