十二月十三日 左衛門少尉為重 奉
An imperial edict (rinji) was dispatched requesting that [the Kujō captain/lord] should attend the [court] ceremonies from the first to third days of the first month as a server.
Although he declined it, edicts have been sent repeatedly, so my lord finally accepted. So, for the necessary 500 hiki [for the lord's attendance], the estate official (satanin) should borrow from the next year's summer wheat as a guarantee.
In order to prepare for attendance at the ceremony [which is held on the first three days of the first month], the lord ordered to complete this task before the coming twenty-fifth day. As for the specifics of this, Otsuya [the messenger] will deliver them, so discuss [the details] with him [so as to ensure compliance].
