BE. Witter Bynner

16. To Yone Noguchi, 14 June 1921. In Atsumi (D15e9), 1975.

Nothing else in the published record establishes an acquaintance between either Bynner or Ficke and Noguchi, but this warm letter surely demonstrates a friendship of some years standing. Bynner writes that he has recently visited Ficke, and so has ‘been with friends of [Noguchi] as well as’ of his own, and they spoke ‘much’ of Noguchi during the visit. He notes that Ficke has a copy of Noguchi’s Hiroshige (D15e8) and that he himself would appreciate one, and inquires about Koizumi Kazuo, Hearn’s son (see also 20b).
