As I was ordered to chastise Prince Otonomiya and Kusunoki hype no jo Masashige, I Kumagai Koshiro Natsune mobilized and led my family: Heiji Naouji, Rokuro Naotomo, Goroshiro Naokazu, and left for the Kusunoki castle. From the 25th day of the past second month to the 28th day, we fought at the main gate and first filled a trench of the castle with rocks and mud. A witness’s account reveals that we performed outstanding, diligent service from early in the morning to late at night. Moreover, witness accounts attest to the fact that I brought my family, and left for Chiba castle on the 5th day of the second month this year. We fought in the trenches around the main gate and built a tower. Several witness accounts also make clear that we diligently served all night long. Please announce the above.
