"He is a leader in the Poetry Club at Oshima, and a constant contributor to the monthly magazine published by the Christians there". "In retell ing these stories, I have allowed myself all freedom. In some I have given explanations and descriptions to make a vivid setting for the picture. In others, Nagata's style and mine are intermingled".
