NORMAN ANGELL
Angell handwrote and signed this undated letter from the Statler Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, to a Mrs. Wainwright, with whom he visited and corresponded with over many years. In this letter, he accepts an invitation to stay at Mrs. Wainwright's home before and after one of his lectures.
Autograph letter signed "Norman Angell" in blue ink. 2 pages, 5x6¼ (one sheet folded, front and verso). Cleveland, Ohio. Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". In full: "My dear Mrs. Wainwright It is extremely good of you & Mr. Wainwright to offer to put me up. I find, however, that as my train arrives at 10.05 in the morning, & that as my lecture is not until three, I should want to rest in the interval. Could I impose myself upon you for that interval?- Also, if you are quite sure that I shall not be a burden, I shall be delighted to accept your invitation to dinner and to stay the night. Looking forward very much to my visit Yours very 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 once horizontally and unfolded. Spine of letter is worn. Otherwise in fine condition.
