A Chronological Record of Narushima Nobuyuki’s Career (16)
I wrote about Narushima Nobuyuki’s career from 1689 to 1741 in serial form. This paper deals with articles presented to him in the second half of 1741. On August 12th, he attended a ceremony to celebrate Takechiyo’s coming of age. After that, he and his friends enjoyed boating in Edo Bay and wrote a travel piece titled Umizuto. On August 13th, Reizei Tamehisa held a gathering of tanka poets, and his pupils, including Nobuyuki, composed tanka poems on the subject of a full moon. In autumn, he gave Ikegami Yukimasa the foreword to a collection of tanka poems by Yukimasa’s deceased younger sister. On December 18th, he presented Konden no Kohou, a statement connected with development of rice fields to Kanou Hisamichi, a top government official of the Tokugawa Shogunate. As usual, Nobuyuki served as mediator between dignitaries around Tokugawa Yoshimune and the librarians of Momijiyama Library.
