Apart from that, there isn't a man more content than I am. I saw you and played with you smart friend and I'll wait for you in Paris./ When will you be here? The telephone is Plaza 1188 and I would like it a lot if you would think of me there one morning./ Thanks again for your constant attention (and for your introduction yesterday)…” Ernest Dimnet (1866-1954) was a French cleric, author, and philosopher.
