Frank Lloyd Wright


December 30, 1946

Dear Frank Lloyd Wright:

I am enclosing my check for the preliminary drawings of my house.

I would like very much to have a preliminary drawing of the opposite elevation of the house—the side of the main entrance. I am eager to see what it will look like.

There are a great many questions I want to ask you about the details of the house, before we start on the working drawings. May I come to see you in Arizona, to discuss it? I would like to come sometime in late January or February. Please let me know whether this would be convenient for you.

With all my gratitude for this house,

As ever,


Ayn Rand


In response, Wright sent a floor plan of a revised servants quarters. 

On January 21, Wright wrote: “Thanks for the check. Come when you are ready.” But AR did not visit him in Arizona.
