Preface to Akashi's "Spokane Japanese Businessmen and their Enterprises," 1913

Translation by Ryosuke Suzuki: "We are always discriminated based on our race in this foreign place. Newspapers or magazines have published many articles on fortunes we have made with tremendous patience and effort. However, it is a matter of regret that there are people who are ignorant about how we have got to where we are today. I would like to share our story by publishing "Spokane Album." I could complete this album with tremendous help and sympathy from our senior friends. I am deeply satisfied that I am writing this introduction even though I have a limited knowledge." Taisho 2 (1913) Shinohara Yabuo.
