Comments - Unusual four-panel kabuki print showing a confrontation taking place at the foot of a verandah. Two distraught young men kneel at right, each holding out a small purse and gesturing with his free hand. The older man at far right seems quite alarmed, his arms spread wide in a stopping motion. At left, a woman reads from a letter with a hopeful expression, while her fellow beauty clasps her hands together in delight. An interesting scene with great expressive faces and wonderful interaction between the characters.
