since the Divine One’s edict on the Crane-sponsored tournaments, over 1800 samurai have attended them. It is my hope that the snow won’t make travel to the Jade and Topaz Championships too difficult.
The children of Doji have made a large contribution this month to the Imperial coffers. I also have received word from the Imperial Treasury that over 15000 koku from unknown origin have been deposited. The treasury confirms their authenticity, but cannot determine who the benefactor is. A total of 86000 Koku have been pledged and it is my belief that we will exceed over 100,000 Koku in donations by the end of the year.
