Johnson further argues that attribution of the Unity Chapel in Spring Green to Wright in any way or form is incorrect as it was designed prior to Wright's leaving UW in Madison...but Wright did paint walls and ceilings during his last summer working for his uncles. The 1887 Hillside Home School house was in design just as Wright arrived at Silsbee's. It is Johnson's position that Wright may have done some drafting relative to the project, but that the design was Silsbee's alone.

The notes in this book are numerous and fascinating...Wright's move to Chicago was very much based on the Lloyd Jones commissions with Silsbee and that Wright was initially supported and later greatly benefitted from Uncle Jenkin's myriad of connections in the Unitarian world in terms of employment, clients, and acquaintances.
