「門人某(なにがし)の家へ稽古に往(い)く折の姿を見れば、衣類の裾(すそ)より綿がはみ出で、羽織の袖肩すり切れ、刀の鞘(さや)は色あせて剥奪(はくだつ)し・・・・」 "When he is seen in his way toward one of his disciples for training, cotton is swollen out of the hem, his haori (half coat) is worn out at its sleeve, the sheath of his sword is faded and peeled off ----"
と、ものの本に記してある。so written in a book.
のちに門人二百余を数え、いくらか生活もととのってきたが、すこしでも余裕(ゆとり)があると、それを惜しみなく困窮の人びとへわけあたえた。Later he comes to have more than 200 disciples and has become richer. But when he comes to have a little more money, he has given most of it generously to poor people.
辻平内は、かつて、越前大野の藩士で杉田庄右衛門・弥平次の兄弟が父・伴助の敵(かたき)、山名源五郎を討つにさいして助太刀をし、首尾よく兄弟に父の仇討(あだうち)をさせた。Heinai Tsuji lent a helping hand to the brothers of Shouemon and Yaheiji Sugita when they took revenge for their father Bansuke to kill Gengoro Yamana, and successfully let them revenge.
これが縁となって、兄の庄右衛門は家督を弟にゆずり、ふたたび江戸へ出て、辻平内の門人となった。For this reason, the elder brother Shoemon handed over the headship of his family to his younger brother, went up to Edo again, and became a disciple of Heinai Tsuji.
