Chapter Summary

On the first day of the First Month, everybody who was anybody in Kyoto and its neighboring provinces presented himself before Nobunaga in Gifu. They were all invited to participate in a toast according to the sangon ceremony. On the 19th of the First Month, Maeba Harima of Echizen was killed by local samurai of that province. The local samurai therefore decided to revolt and do away with him. On the first day of the Second Month, an advance force consisting of troops from Owari and Mino was sent to the relief. On the 28th of the Third Month, at the Hour of the Dragon, the doors of the imperial treasury were opened. The precious aloes wood was kept in an oblong chest measuring six shaku. Nobunaga acquired this treasure, one famous throughout the Three Countries. What could compare to the glory and honor that Nobunaga enjoyed in our empire!.
