Steinbeck writes, “I was very much interested in your letter about Richard Wright. It’s quite true that I knew him a number of years ago in Mexico. He came on the “Village” set where we were making “THE FORGOTTEN VILLAGE” and seemed to be very interested in the work we were doing among the Indians."
