Please find here a letter that was attached to a scroll in very bad condition, to say the least.
I hope it is not too long for a translation, otherwise I would be interested to know what it says in general terms.

Below it is the top half of the scroll by Aita Sozan 会田 素山 (1819~1892), I think it might be a poem. Would it be possible to give the text even if only partial in kanji?

Below that the bottom half - a man at a go board, who might be analyzing a game.

Thanks very much.
The poem remains... Since Sozan was a poet as well, it might be one of his own.
When a few kanji are recognized a search in his works might find the poem.
