NORMAN ANGELL
Angell signed this typed letter on stationery of the Commodore Hotel in New York City to a Mrs. Wainwright of Scranton, Pennsylvania, who often invited Angell to stay at her home. In this letter, he regrets having to decline her invitation due to appendicitis.
Typed letter signed "Yours very Sincerely/Norman Angell", 1 page, 5½x8¼, on stationery of the Commodore Hotel in New York City. Dated "26 Jan". Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". In full: "My dear Mrs Wainwright, On Sunday morning I woke up with bad nausea, temperature... but I managed to crawl out to do a broadcast f r [sic] which I was scheduled, and came back to pack; while packing virtually collapsed, 'phoned for the doctor whp [sic] on arrival wanted to cart me off to the hospital there and then I decided to risk it, however, not-withstanding that his blood count revealed undoubtedly sub-acute appen-dicitis. This morning I'm better, but wobbly. I cannot tell you how dis-appointed I was at having to sacrifice the chance of seeing you; but though man may propose his appendix disposes. But I hope one of these days - perhaps this coming fall - to make that visit and see you once again. My very best regards to your people". 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 Norman Angell (1872-1967), born Ralph Norman Angell Lane, 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 continued to write and lecture into the 1950s. Lightly toned and creased. Pinhead-size stain at lower blank edge. Folded twice and unfolded. Torn along top edge on right edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
