Chapter Summary

First, Nobunaga had morning tea served to twelve guests in his sitting room. After the tea, all presented themselves before Nobunaga. On the 4th of the First Month, Lord Sanmi no Chūjō Nobutada hosted a tea party at the place of Manmi Senchiyo. On this occasion, Lord Nobunaga presented Ichihashi Kurōemon with a painting of rose mallows. On the 29th of the First Month, a fire broke out at the house of Fukuda Yoichi, a member of Nobunagas archery. Nobunaga castigated sixty of his archers and sixty of his horse guards, one hundred and twenty men in all, for not having moved their families. He then instructed the Gifu Lieutenant General, Lord Nobutada, to send out his officials from Gifu, put a torch to the houses of all the archers who had left their wives and children behind in Owari Province, and even cut down the trees in their residences.
