Would appreciate if someone could provide me with the correct kanji characters appearing in the top right column of the scroll pictured at https://picasaweb.google.com/irwin.lavenberg/KirinoToshiakiSWife?authuser=0&feat=directlink
These characters should provide the name of Kirino Toshiaki's wife (or mistress). (Both figures participated in the Satsuma Rebellion.) Her name is sometimes given as "Hisa" or "Akiko" and the character 子 (ko) is seen in the top right column of the scroll.
