The French priest informs his friend about the publishing of his book, The Art of Thinking, signs his name in black ink
Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 2 pages front and verso, 6x7. Written on personal letterhead. Original envelope included. Paris, France. Addressed to Mrs. J. Wainwright, in full: "My very dear friend, Your letter made me homesick for you and I do not like "that stern resolve" note to visit Europe this year. November will come of course but it is still far-off an my two or three days at 912 seem like a mirage oasis. I know and you know that I never was there except to be treated in the most considerate manner, always leaving refreshed and not tired. It is not so everywhere, and I shall amuse you some day with the tale of my St. Louis experiences last winter. It is just like you to take on another chairmanship to be able to invite me. I shall love to give that lecture on current events. Our general election is taking placing next week, but the trend of the new chamber will not appear till the autumn and that along with the foreign position of France, by that time, will give us our subject. I shall like, if possible, to be able to point out to a few spots on the map of Europe. What fun it would be to be in Scranton for a week-end and see Rut with the added knowledgeand experience three years will have given her! - Would Nov. 3 - Satuday - suit you? And in case some better were now on its way to secure that date elsewhere, would Nov. 10 do as well? I gave Mrs. Sill your message. She wants me to thank you. She has several times mentioned the pleasure she had in making your acquaintance and I know how sincere she is about those things. Please remember me to Dr. Wainwright and to my Scronton friends. Especially Mrs. Belvi, Mrs. Clark and Mr. Fitzgerald etc. Tres affectueus a vous, chere avie". Post script: "My Art of Thinking is going to be published by Simon and Schuester - very efficient, as you know. PPS: Do you mind posting the enclosed?". Ernest Dimnet (1866-1954) was a French cleric, author and philosopher. His best known work, The Art of Thinking (1930) invites the reader into a state of honesty where he evaluates himself as a thoughtful human being, for humans too often only "think of thinking" instead of actually thinking, which obstructs production of any original thought. Dimnet is also well regarded for his books, What We Live By (1932) and for his popular French translations of English books written by Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Slightly stained. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
