A letter by Fujiwara Kunihisa from the twentieth day of the seventh month of an unknown year.
The three tan1 of land, Ōi of Miyanaga myō, Ayamesho myō, and Nuda of Munetomo myō, were designated as public taxable land at the time of the survey of the beginning of the Shōwa era (1312). However, the Ōi land has been designated as the lands for the Estate Secretary (kumon), while Nuda and Ayamesho were designated as concealed, tax free lands (fuseda). Although it has been stated that, in accordance with precedent, these lands have received repeated exemptions, what has been recorded in the survey cannot readily be changed, even though a number of years have passed. Nevertheless, for it to reach such an intense lament is most regrettable, and so these acreages (tsubotsubo) are hereby exempted from the land tax (shotōmai)as they are uncultivatable and untaxable (jōfu) lands. This purport shall be known.
Twentieth day of the Seventh month
To: The honorable lay priest, the Tannowa Secretary (kumon)
