Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet", in black ink, 4 pages (integral leaf), 4½x7. Accompanied by original mailing envelope. October 7, 1927. In part: "My Dear Friend, Your note came - so nice. You are a valued friend I assure you. Alas, alas! My Scranton plans seem badly marked now that I have seen my schedule. Fri-day will be enjoyed till I leave St. Louis Dec 13 to lecture the next day in Albany". 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. Toned. Multiple folds. Slight creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
