Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet", 8½x5½. June 12, 1928. Accompanied by original mailing envelope. In part: "My Dear Friend Here is your letter sent back from N.Y. You always say the most charming things. Did you ear buzz Dec 1st while I was at St. Timothy's. Miss Fowler does not look like you, but elle a le vos airs, I told her and she was delighted". 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. Slightly toned. Bottom edge frayed. Corners slightly worn. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
