ANS – Autograph Note Signed on a postcard, dated 1937. Reads: It is impossible to be more thoughtful. Accept my thanks for yourself and Mrs. Dornuf. Ernest Dimnet.
Father Dimnet was the author of The Art of Thinking, a popular book on thinking and reasoning. Born in France, he moved to the US after WWI. The Art of Thinking was on the best seller-lists in the 1930’s, alongside Dale Carnegie’s self-help works, but is mostly forgotten today.
