ERNEST DIMNET
The French philosopher discusses mutual acquaintances with a friend, signs name in black ink
Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 1 page, 6x7. Written on Mrs. Lucius B. Swift's letterhead. Original envelope included. Indianapolis, Indiana. January 15, no year. Addressed to Mrs. Wainwright, in full: "Too tantalizing! I shall not be back to New York before the 28th, and I should have loved to have you at lunch or dinner before being your guest at Scranton. How wonderful that a Catholic bishop should have discovered and appreciated you! It is true Bishop Hoban is no ordinary person and even discovered a book of mine. Many thanks for giving me the franchise of your house as you do. I shall do as you say: taxi to your house, ask the servants to show me to my room and be ready by nine o'clock, perhaps before you appear downstairs. I very much appreciate your hospitality and the manner in which it is offered. Very sincerely yours". 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. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
