NORMAN ANGELL
Angell signed and wrote a handwritten postscript on this letter on stationery from the Murray Hill Hotel of New York City to a Mrs. Wainwright of Scranton, Pennsylvania, who often invited him to her home. In this letter, he informs Mrs. Wainwright of when he'll arrive by train in Scranton.
Typed letter signed: "Norman Angell", 5¼x7 (one page folded), on stationery of the Murray Hill Hotel in New York City. Dated "3 Jan". Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". Typed section in full: "My Dear Mrs. Wainwright: It is extremely good of you to offer to put me up while I am in Scranton, and I accept with great pleasure. It would seem that the only feasable [sic] train for me is the one which arrives in Scranton at 11.18 on the Sunday evening. It is a most ungodly hour to arrive, but I will take a taxi immediately at the station so that I should hope to be at your house by 11.30, by which time I expect you will have gone to bed, and I shall feel extremely apologetic to the member of the household who stays up to let me in. I am looking forward so much to exchanging notes of the last year or two. Yours very sincerely." Handwritten postscript at left margin: "I find I shall have to take [illegible] night train out of Scranton; and it will give me the whole evening with you." 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. At the time he signed this letter, Angell was the editor of Foreign Affairs (1928-1931). He would be knighted two years later and receive the Nobel Peace Prize three years later. In 1910, British journalist Angell (1872-1967), 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. Folded in half and unfolded. Otherwise, fine condition.
