134. Recollections

About 1883 or 1884, Tamae, granddaughter, and Moto, great-granddaughter, who was two years younger,'[1] appeared before Oyasama and begged Her, "Grandma, please give us a snack." Oyasama shaded Her eyes with Her hand and looked toward them, saying:

"Ah, Tama and Omoto. Wait a minute, dears,"

and She took something out from the small cupboard in the back and placed it in the palm of their hands. It was always sugar candies.

On another day, the two of them went to visit Oyasama as usual, and She said:

"Tama and Omoto, won't you two come here? Let me carry you,"

and She carried both of them on Her back. In their childlike minds both were impressed with the thought that their grandmother was so strong.

  1. Tamae was then seven or eight, and Moto was five or six.
