Takakura Nagatsugu acknowledges and celebrates the praise that Awazu Kiyonori received from the emperor for his service in rescuing the emperor’s clothes. The Awazu were the retainers of the Takakura, and their relationship, and praise for their service (chūsetsu) mirrors the language of warriors.
Concerning the Continental chest of the Retired Emperor (sentō)
Somehow you were able to accomplish this difficult task, and when you bring it to the palace, this will be a performance of first-rank service as ordered by the in.
In addition once you have managed to do this, it will be most wonderful.
