Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 1 page front and verso, 3½x4½. Written on personal letterhead. Original envelope included. New York City, New York. October 18, no year. Addressed to Mrs. J. Wainwright, in part: "My very dear friend, I landed this morning. I am leaving for Chicago [c/o Mrs. W.E. Clarke, 999, Lakeshore Drive] tomorrow. I shall be there till Oct. 26th. From Nov. 3rd I shall be here with of course frequent outflights of a day or two. I wonder if Mrs. Beliu has been able to arrange about our Current Events. It may not be easy, but it would be a keen disappointment to miss you". 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. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
