Isn't that little personal essay something ? He seems to have let down his guard, drawn his chair a little closer, and spoken directly to a visitor in his own voice, not the pontificating one we know from other writings.

Paul Turner, friend to the Fellowship and to Wrightians, yet to be embraced as widely as he should and must, has bitten a very large bullet with this project: an untouched gem of a subject vital to an understanding of Wright. More power to him . . .

I did not know who he was until I read the articles' author bio identifying him as the author of the ... Wright and San Francisco book.
Did you read the one comment in the comment section about John Lloyd Stevens and Frederick Catherwood? According to the writer of the comment Wright mentions their book in his Autobiography.

That commenter seems quite wrapped up in Catherwood's illustrations of what was unearthed (and/or defoliated) in the jungles, claiming that those drawings (or paintings) informed the illustrations of Wright's work. Judge for yourself:
