comment How do you say terms of endearment (pet names) in Japanese?
The author is 宮部金吾 (Miyabe Kingo). This is from an unpublished private letter written in the early Meiji era. It is housed in the 北海道大学植物園図書資料の宮部金吾資料. He wrote most of his letters to friends in English though the recipients were Japanese. I imagine that he anticipated that the recipient would be able to associate the phrases with something comparable in Japanese.
