On the 21st day of the Fifth Month Tenroku 4 , former emperor En’yū, who was then the sovereign, visited the Princess of the First Order [Shishi 資子] and, following a loss at a game with go counters, on the 7th day of the Seventh Month, the Princess had a fan wrapped in thin cloth and presented to the imperial pantry.

In early autumn
Is this fan’s breeze:
I wonder, should I lend it you more?
