Judy,

I found another image of the print on the net. Hopefully this makes it a little easier to read.

Anyway the date appears to be Meiji 12, 2nd month (February 1879). I believe the print is a homage to Enomoto Takeaki, who was a very prominent figure in Meiji Japan (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enomoto_Takeaki), comparing him to a medieval war hero.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
