"25, Hijikki Machi, Ushigome, Tokio.
5-12-13

Dear Sir Pro. Macewen,
I cannot ignore without sending an information about my condition, since I have got home. I am be able to walk a few miles without help of any stick and to move up my left arm with light thing now, moreover they are improving continuously still. Many friends of mine, who meet me when I have got home, were surprised about your cleverness and skillfulness, which let me be recovered so good.
I was expected, before I left England, that I must go in reserve list connection with my injured limbs, but I am remaining in an active service now that is your merit.
I venture to send a little cigar case to commemorate my limbs’ recovery by your treat, in the hope that you may perhaps like to make use of it.
Please give my kind regards to Lady Macquwen and Dr John.

Yours sincerely,

Y. Masaki"
