fore I pray you will ask the other high officials (now defendants) whether they had received my letters not and as a parting word would like to hear their opinions on them. Especially, I greatly regret that Prince Konoe, without giving me a reply to my letter which I wrote to him, at the time he sent a message to the U. S. President (Roosevelt) and in which I proposed that the negotiations for peace must be continued to the last, should have passed away to the other world. Amen. Yours truly, Suganuma Eiji (farmer) P. S. Please convey the following to Hideki Tojo. 1.I cannot suppress my joy when I think of my going to the land where the Buddha awaits. 2.Since I have surrendered up my life, I entrust everything to the hands of Buddha.
