Poem: Hitowaima/ kokoromoshirazu/ furusatowa/hanazomukashino/ kaninioikeru 人はいざ 心もしらず ふるさとは 花ぞむかしの 香に匂ひける いづれの時にやありけん 筑志の弓取加藤繁氏と云る人 故ありて所領を捨て 紀の国高野に登り 桑門なし 苅萱と号 其子石働丸ハ孝心深く 遙と八葉の峯を尋さまよひ 艱難辛苦のかひありて 親子再会を遂けるとぞ 柳下亭種員筆記

By 1911, purchased by William Sturgis Bigelow (b. 1850–d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; 1911, gift of Bigelow to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 19, 2005) NOTES:  Much of Bigelow's collection of Asian art was formed during his residence in Japan between 1882 and 1889, although he also made acquisitions in Europe and the United States.
