Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 1 page front and verso, 5¼x6¾ folded. Written on personal letterhead. Original envelope included. New York City, New York. November 15, no year. Addressed to Mrs. J.M. Wainwright, in full: "My dear friend, I always hate to leave you and your re-appearance is always a joy. It was ever more of one the day before yesterday Mr. Gidvily had staying in to meet you. At the last moment he would not show himself to thank you enough for all your warm-hearted sympathy and your intention to see my publishers. My Princeton lecture yesterday was quite an extraordinary success. Very affectionately 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. Slightly toned. Normal mailing folds. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
