Dear Mr. Kim,
	I have an address for the Philip Jaisohn Memorial Foundation but
do not know if it is still current.  Anyway:
		4818 N. Broad Street,
		Philadelphia, PA 19141
	This foundation published <Philip Jaisohn, the First Korean-
American: A Forgotten Hero>, by Channing Liem (Im Ch'annyOng) in 1984.
This biography takes a rather worshipful and hagiographical approach to SO
Chaep'il's life, but does quote a lot of his letters, etc.  I got a copy
of it from the above address around 1992.
