Lafcadio Hearn on Ants

(Patrick) Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904): essayist, journalist, and teacher. Son of an Irish father and Greek mother, Hearn settled in Japan in 1890 after living in America for several years where he was known for his writings about the New Orleans. In Japan he taught English and wrote extensively about the country, its myths, and its history. His essays became the West's most popular source of information about the recently “opened” Japan. - Wikipedia 

According to Shunryu Suzuki Hearn lived in Yaizu (and Matsue) where Shunryu Suzuki's Rinsoin temple is from. Here's a piece he wrote on ants.
