Description


Letter of Isshiki Fujinaga

Regarding the capture of the Utsunomiya, deepest thanks for the gift of the 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

一色藤長書状

〔捕ヵ〕

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

牛福殿

人々御中
