Letter by Hosokawa Fujitaka

There is a recent discovery of late about a letter written by Hosokawa Fujitaka (1534-1610) which mentions Nobunaga and Akechi Mitsuhide.  Fujitaka was the lord of Shoryuji Castle at the time.  Nobunaga's army attacked the castle in 1568 and handed it over to Fujitaka.  One can see Nobunaga's name written on the letter third column on the right.

Nobunaga no tame!
