The sixth day of the past ninth month, when the grand general (Hatakeyama Kunikiyo] set off to Izumi, my representative, and younger brother Taifubō went to Kinoshima—report of arrival issued. The seventh day he advanced to Yagi castle and on the eighth day—rainy—he performed military service. Next, my retainer (wakatō) Hikojirō was at the Miyao castle in Sobura. On the second day of this month at Busshōji in Shindachi estate he joined the forces of Kashii Hikogorō nyūdōand [reported his] arrival. He then set off and performed varied military service in various places. Furthermore, on the 8th day at Koshima, in the same province, we captured the straggler Hikohachi. Furthermore, we performed ample military service during the battle at Ōki castle. To conclude, we desire for this document to be monogrammed so as to serve in the future for proof [of our service]. Thus humbly I state.
