Typed letter on Milwaukee hotel stationery and signed by Angell. In it, he accepts an offer for lodging with a Mrs. Wainwright.
Typed letter signed "Norman Angell" in blue ink. 2 pages, 6x9¼ (1 sheet, front and verso), on stationery of the New Pfister Hotel of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Undated. Addressed to "Mrs. Wainwright". 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. He wrote this during a lecture tour. He apologizes for not accepting a previous offer for lodging as his "...schedule on this tour is a sort of picture puzzle". He adds that he has a radio broadcast in New York "about my money game [sic]" and would arrive in Scranton, Pennsylvania before one of his lectures. He writes that, if it didn't inconvenience her and if she could send a car to pick him, then he would be delighted to stay at her home. Accompanied by: original mailing envelope to "Mrs. Wainwright", Scranton, Pennsylvania, postmarked Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jan. 14, 1932, no stamp affixed. 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. Letter is lightly toned and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Envelope is lightly toned and soiled. Top has been torn open, with large piece missing from top right corner. Otherwise in fine condition.
