The French priest, best known for his philosophical book The Art of Thinking, writes letter to friend inviting her to visit him in Europe
Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 2 pages front and verso, 5½x7½ folded.. Original envelope included. Paris, France. Addressed to Mrs. J. Wainwright, in full: "My very dear friend, Many thanks for your letter and many for your treat. These biscuits will appear many times on my [illegible] table when the lengthening afternoon tells me it is time to think of tea. How I wish you could sometimes be there! I sent your more than friendly introduction to Miss Fowler. My schedule for next autumn is almost complete now and I have only the dates to settle. You ask "what my terms now are" some blubs in the [illegible] paid me higher fees this time than I had ever had, but others paid $125 or even 100. So if the Scranton budget is no longer what it was to be let it was to be let it do what it can and no more. The joy will be to be in your house again. It seems as if you two quickly repeated trips to Europe were keeping you from thinking of another, but who knows [illegible] the same or similar circumstances may [illegible] the same effect? It would be an immense joy if you were to write me tha you are coming. Tres a vous, chere amie...". 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.
