安満星(柱本瑞俊)の英領インド調査(1907年~1909年) : 安満星の円明院と柱本瑞雲宛私信の整理報告

Investigation by Ama Akira (Hashiramoto Zuishun) in British-Ruled India from 1907 to 1909 : A report of organizing private letters which Ama Akira addressed to Enmeiin and Hashiramoto Zuiun
Ema, Sayaka
We conducted the third investigation at Meikakuji of Kyoto in March 2013, and found out private letters at the time of the India investigation by Ama Akira (Hashiramoto Zuishun). Based upon those letters, it was revealed that the solitary investigation in India (1907-1909) by Ama Akira was conducted before the Second Otani Expeditionary Party.

Since that is the fact which has been unknown before, those private letters are enormously valuable as historical sources. Also note that Hashiramoto Zuishun was the same person whose name was changed from Ama Akira; Enmeiin, one of the address, was the mother of Otani Kozui who dispatched the Otani Expeditionary Party; and Hashiramoto Zuiun was his father.
