Younger Sister,

By all means look after your health and devote yourself to your filial duties to Mother, and do my portion too.
I ask that you cultivate yourself to become like the women of Japan from olden times or our mother, who is strong inside and ladylike.
Please realize that a good mother is indeed the driving force that will truly bring prosperity to Japan.

It goes without saying that when there is only a hairsbreath for me,
my soul will be reborn seven times and protect the land of my ancestors.
