While Muneshige went to Osaka and Kyoto to regain his position, his wife, Ginchiyo, temporarily lived in Higo Province (Kumamoto Prefecture). This letter was sent from the feudal lord of the Higo domain, Kato Kiyomasa, to Muneshige’s vassal, informing that he received her thank-you letter for his food supply. In the next year, Ginchiyo died at the age of thirty-five.
