1096. The Teikoku Hotel, Tokyo
















Dear Richard,

"They all listened and they understood, in a way. But finally
the chief rose to his feet and said: Mr Wright, (he spoke very
good English) you are a very famous architect. You wouldn't
come here and try to build us something that would fall down;
and while we do not understand the principles  that you have
tried to explain to us, we have confidence that you will do
something from which we can learn. You may go ahead and
build your building and we will watch and we will hope to
learn" (Frank Lloyd Wright)

Regards,
R
