The French author of The Art of Thinking sends his thanks to a friend, signs name in blue ink
Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in blue ink. 1 page, 5¼x7 folded. Original envelope included. Written aboard the SS De Grasse. Addressed to Dr. Wainwright, in full: "My Dear Friend, Your invariable thoughtfulness was waiting for me on the boat. You are too wonderful. I am quite myself again. In a few days I shall have the joy to see Dr. Wainwright and Dear Governor, and they can give you a good report of me. 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. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
