To those who think the internet era gave birth to people having strong opinions, I’m here to offer a counterpoint. This note to me from Dick Swann is from 1970 when I was still a student at The Peddie School with only a mild interest in bicycles. The page is in reply to some questions I posted to him in a letter a month earlier.

So, is this what the narrator in The Living National Treasures of Japan meant when he uttered the words, “To surpass the master is to repay the debt.”?
