From MacKenzie's Kodansha book. It is the letter where Leach talks about the lack of an American Taproot. Click on image to see a larger view. Here is a short quote: "The tap-root is surely The Self coming out through you. I am not surprised at what you write of Marianne'sw pots or Sander's book on Tomimoto, or even of what many feel about my pots -- or drawings. My observervation , and in sympathy, is the absence of a tap-root in America. I would dealy like to hear the new voice of America in pots as I heard it in Whitman's poetry long ago. In an individualist age it begins with'you.' "
