Angell handwrote and signed this undated letter to a Mrs. Wainwright of Scranton, Pennsylvania, whom he frequently wrote and visited over a period of many years, about a possible visit. Written on stationery from the Hotel Graham in Bloomington, Indiana.
Autograph letter signed "Norman Angell", 3 pages, 5¾x9½ (two sheets, front and verso), on stationery from the Hotel Graham in Bloomington, Indiana. Dated Nov. 16. Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". In full: "My dear Mrs. Wainwright It was delightful to hear from you again, & to get some news of you. I don't think I could have got your letter if I did not reply. The summer was rather a disturbing one for me, but I seem to remember clearly writing you though I couldn't recall if it was in respect of that particular matter. I should certainly like very much to talk to the Forum you mention. Jan 1934 is rather a long way off, but the chances are that I shall be over here at that time. I shall know more definitely in about a month's time. May I write you then? Meantime, it's extremely good of you again to extend your hospitality, & if I should find myself in your neighbourhood I should certainly make a point of availing myself of it. But present circumstances don't seem to bring me very near. If they are modified, however, I will let you know in good time. How is the [illegible]? And your daughter? I look forward to the time when I may once before I die, visit America with sufficient elbow room as to time to enable me to drink tea with a selected few of my American friends and leisure to talk over the world's woes. Let's hope it will happen! Yours sincerely." Angell maintained a fairly sizable correspondence with this unidentified "Mrs. Wainwright", who would often open her home to him when he was in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area. In 1910, British journalist Angell (1872-1967, born Ralph Norman Angell-Lane in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, England) rose to fame with The Great Illusion, in which he reasoned that the common economic interests of nations make war futile. Knighted in 1931, Angell was awarded the 1933 Nobel Peace Prize. He also invented the Money Game, which were card games designed to teach its players about currency and credit. He continued to write and lecture into the 1950s. Lightly toned and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
