グイド・フルベッキの手紙 義理の兄さんに書いた手紙

慶応4年4月19日。長崎。

 

フルベッキからニューヨークのヴァン・デュアズという義理の兄さんに送った手紙。フルベッキの姉はヴァン・デュアズと結婚した。

 

幕末時代の危険のことも書いて:'.......The whole country is in a state of ferment & passing through a great revolution. The country is struggling out of medieval feudalism into the clearer light of our present age of liberty. But the struggle is not over yet. In our immediate vicinity we are not likely, however, to be exposed to personal danger, though assassination of foreigners may still occur from time to time. I am sure you would not feel greatly at your ease if you thought it necessary to examine every night as you go to sleep a pair of revolvers to be placed securely under your pillow.....'

 

それとブラウン神父に強い批判も書いてあって面白い手紙です。

 

'.....Mr. Brown is now in the U.S. & as I heard last, temporarily settled in his former place near Owasco Lake, close by Auburn. I doubt whether he will be sent out again. I hope not. He is really not a good man (privately said) & has made the name of Christian & of the Dutch Church “to stink in the nostrils” of all who knew him. And his wife! and his daughter!!! I am now the only one remaining of the party that left N.Y. in May ‘59. Our dear brother Ballagh, of our board at Yokohama, is too going home by this mail to get his wife back to Japan. He seems to be a most devoted missionary & faithful laborer. I was rejoiced to hear that he just baptized two Japanese at Yokohama. During Brother Ballagh’s absence from Japan, I shall be the only representative of our church in this country. Mr. B will be back here this year.....'
