Did anyone here make scans or screen grabs of those items ? A similarity in the signature, down to the blue ink or ballpoint used by whoever created them, was evident. I had hoped, now, to be able to compare all of the samples we had from these suspect items of correspondence.

Definitely a FAKE.
I've wondered what to do about fakes like these, besides calling attention to them here. It's a pity to see the name Frank Lloyd Wright taken in vain in this manner. What would you do ?
refer to the particular document it purports to guarantee; it cites only "Frank Lloyd Wright on 1956 letter"---an oddly worded and vague description.

Not only is the signature inauthentic, the entire document is a fabrication, dating according the Henry Whiting's evidence no earlier than the 1990s.
The maker has either found a cache of unused Taliesin stationery or has created sheets to appear as such, has used an old typewriter to produce a
message, has distressed and aged the paper (by folding), and has created accompanying matter that attempts an impression of provenance.
Why is the (nick)name of a living Taliesin Fellow included in the backstory of this supposedly genuine letter ?
